Check out www.schenkstudios.com/downloads.html. He is here at TA and he has great videos and he even helps you out if you e-mail or pm him! I am not trying to put him on the spot, he is busy working on Kiss Kiss, so he is very busy. His tutorials are priceless. PERIOD. I hope you enjoy learning obj-c! I love it, so don't let anybody tell you it is hard, bad, or boring. It is fun!

I found icodeblog.com a great place to start. If you're making games, you probably don't care much about the UI stuff though. Once you've gotten your feet wet, try googling 'cocos2d iphone' -- it's a great engine that abstracts some of the "boring stuff" so you can get started on your game ASAP.
