Well, hello everyone. Like the title says, this is about Java Gaming books.
I'm very new to Java gaming. In fact, the closest thing to a "game" that I've done was the "Sink a Dot Com" tutorial from Head First Java
(which is like a console Battleship game). So, I'm looking for a book for a beginner, but one isn't afraid of going into complex concepts.
I'm looking right now at Beginning Java 5 Game Programming
. Has anyone used this book? What about Killer Game Programming in Java
? Out of the two, which would YOU buy? Killer Game Programming is 3x as long, so I imagine it covers more than Beginning Java 5 Game Programming...
(And to not revive an old dead thread I saw..) What's the best way to learn about AI programming? Internet tutorials, or books? I looked for some books, but they all seemed too old to be good for current use (2003/2004).
Thanks in advance guys.
