Anyone notice that she sounds like she has candy or a lollipop in her mouth while trying to narrate?

Candy wasn't what came to mind, but yes...

:rolleyes:

Maybe they'll figure out a way to make Zunes a requirement for this eventually.

:rolleyes: @ you. Seriously, why not use silverlight? It's good and it's their product. Do you complain when Adobe uses Flash or when Apple uses Quicktime???

Ok so #1 is "Let's talk about XNA" and #2 will be "Let's install Visual C# express and XNA", and by luck in #3 we'll get to see some actual code? I love XNA but I'm eager for some more advanced tutorials than what we've seen until now. Ok I know how to move a sprite on screen, now what? Teach me GUIs, basic AI techniques, saving/loading games, all the grunt.

Who the **** calls a / a "wack"?

EDIT: I'm sorry Microsoft, but ffs get someone who doesn't have the world's most annoying voice to do this.
