New DVD! Low-Res Character Production
In this DVD instructor Adam Schuman walks you through the entire process of constructing a low resolution character worthy of any "next-generation" game. Follow him as he shows you his techniques in exporting the high-res model from ZBrush, reconstructing the low-res meshes, creating the UV's for all of the meshes, baking out all of the maps (3ds Max and xNormal), creating all of the textures, using real-time viewport shaders, and rendering out the final for your portfolio.
This DVD is geared to improve your workflow by helping you understand what is expected of professionals in the field today.

Fantastic! I hope it's followed up by something on rigging and animating the guy, talk about tricks for nice deformations where you can't simply get away with complicated rigs like the offline-rendering world could do, and on cleaning up and adapting mocap to your needs, etc.
Preferably using Max with CAT, ofcourse
