God and Mind

A great Xenogears fansite, made long long ago, probably when I was still 17 years old, this is probably a remnant of a lost era of video games. For me it's a nice memory of my past life in high school, when I used to come home every day and play this till i fell asleep. I still have the game but its been years since I was able to start a new game file. This website is wonderful and has a lot of stuff from the Xenogears experience. I recommend you go check it out.

Xenogears: God and Mind

If you are wondering what Xenogears is, it is not Xenosaga, it is the game which predates it, but comes after Xenosaga in both games universes. It's an old one but it's completely worth buying still.

The first time i played it through, it took me 90 hours over a period of say, 6 months. At the time I had never played a game over 15 hours, and this was amazing! This game really changed my life in a sense that I began trying to think deeper about the storyline and plots to my own comics. I also became deeply attached to the characters in this game. Overall really it inspired me to go for more than the usual forms of entertainment in everything. I felt that Xenogears had taught me to look beyond what a video game, TV show or a comic book could be. In order to create truly lasting work, I would have to make something that changed my viewers perceptions about the world, and changed their lives for the good. I would have to make a lasting impression on them, as the Xenogears game made on me.

Sonic the Hedgehog Selects.


Volume two is now available!!! In addition, "Knuckles the Dark Legion" mini series has been re-released along with a slew of the first Knuckles books from the cut-short Knuckles the Echidna comic book series. I am so happy about this. The Sonic Super Specials are something I used to look forward to as a kid, even though i have a pile of them, this collection would be great, I really do prefer graphic novels to the monthly issues now. In addition the Sonic Archives have gone even further now. Sonic #194 just came out as well. Things are really looking up for this series, FINALLY.

My SVA Senior Portfolio

My senior portfolio will be my science fiction/adventure story "Infinity Roads." This project has been worked on, on and off for the past year or two. I originally started it back in 2006, unfortunately due to lack of experience with printing technology and text layouts, it was not as successful as i had hoped. This new version will feature a 5 page wrap up of the original story and the conclusion to the story, which I have wanted to write for such a long time now. I really would like to pull off a 30-40 page book here, but let's see what happens. If it can be shorter that would work as well. Eventually I will put them together as a small graphic novel (maybe pocket size). and begin selling. In addition to that I will be releasing a graphic novel of my collective works since 2006 eventually. This is only about 50 pages into being done. All that scanning takes time, but this will be regular graphic novel size, probably ending around 150-200 pages. Both will be available next year! Look forward to it : )
