I've been trying to think in that mind set lately to get more done. I feel like it will be easier after I finish a few more games. Right now Its kind of like walking into a fog without really knowing how far along I am and how much further I need to go befopre I finish the developing the game. Are general checkpoints or steps to follow? (ex. develop game idea, do pseudo code for classes, do artwork, do sounds, implement, polish it off)

Cool. Ya i've fiddled around with Maya for 3d modelling and textures. And some 3D animation. 2D in flash. I find it hard to specialize. I kind of get discouraged because I get the feeling that there are so many people out there that are experts at such a young age. Or it seems that way anyways.

Thanks. I've been working through a sidescrolling platformer lately and I've had a lot of this. Sometimes I just sit and think for like 5 minutes about what exactly is happening and why its not working. Doyou have any specific projects youve worked on that youd recommend trying?

By shipping solutions, are you talking about in the business sense, like shipping releases for software?

I am a student in computer science, I would say beginner to intermediate level. I've created some games using Flash as3 on my own, and done standard course material in java. Im mainly interested in creating software for entertainment or things like apps. I'm in a state of "You don't know what you don't know". And I know that. And I want to get out of that state by finding out what I really am uneducated on.
