Aliens invading with XNA


Brian Peek, of wiimote fame, gave a talk to the Facebook .NET Programmers Group and had it recorded.  The talk is about creating a clone of Space Invaders called Alien Attack in XNA Game Studio 3.0.  If you want even greater detail, this is the first chapter in the Coding4Fun book.
