It has been two weeks since I blogged about becoming a better developer. Since then I have been playing with XNA, using George's excellent turorials from xnadevelopment.com.

I am working on a game called Dennis the Ameoba. And, as said before, I am thinking about porting my Bloodletting game from the GWB game contest to XNA. I think that it would also be fun to port the Crusader game from Coding4Fun to XNA.

One thing that I find irritating is that there are many XNA tutorials but not alot of places where I can see completed games. I want to see something like Great Games Experiment, where people can upload their games, comment and vote on other's games. Xbox360homebrew.com had some posts but once the game contest ran out, no posts since March 2007. Maybe I will have to create a site like Great Games Experiment for XNA games.

Glad the tutorials are helping Scott. Here's a FAQ getting started over at the XNA forums for the game seeking complaint you had.

Hope that helps get you what you were looking for. I expect more updates to that FAQ as more sites popup.

You can most definitely post XNA games on the Great Games Experiment. You can tag those games as XNA and mark them for the windows platform. Was there a specific reason you thought of that would prevent people from posting XNA games on GGE?

Absolutely not!
I was talking about a XNA-only site. I was using Great Games Experiment (which I visit almost daily) as an example of a site design that would be good for XNA-only game site.

Gotcha, guess I missed the point here. But whats preventing people from posting those XNA games on GGE as well? I'd love to see even more games out there, especially XNA games created by independent developers.
