So, the next thing that I wanted to learn was animating sprites and creating some base classes for them. I ran across a great tutorial at XNA Resources that did the job wonderfully. I have spent the past couple days going through the tutorial and making sure that I understand all of it. It seems like it may be a bit excessive, but I would rather have too much functionality than too little. I have zipped up the project I created off of it for anyone that may be interested in it. Next, I will be following a couple of tile engine tutorials and will either turn them into a platformer or adventure type game.
