If you're reading this, I can confirm that yes, the Mystic Legends website is back up and running. The overhaul wasn't as drastic as I would have liked, but I'm starting to think I should just be glad that I'm able to make things with what I've got, along with the knowledge I have. I'm no master web programmer, that much is certain. I'm no master of art and comics either. But meh. I'm starting to think that perhaps this is as best as Mystic Legends is going to get. Maybe that whole "Mystic Legends is now a full fledged videogame!" idea IS a pipe dream. But at the very least, I can make a sprite comic out of the series.
I have a LOT to explain, and I kinda don't even know where to begin on that. But regardless, the main objective of is done: Get this website re-made and prepped for the comic re-boot. Speaking of, you'll notice there's no actual link for "The Official Comic" yet. I have yet to get started on that section. "The Old Sprite Comic" is where you'll find all the episodes I made for this website in the past now. Oh, and speaking of that section...
2 NEW EPISODE UPDATES ARE IN THERE! HAVE FUN!

*Insert another joke about how I'm still alive*
Anyway, today is just a minor update. But... I got a new Mystic Legends forum running now. It's a small step, but it's a step none the less. I'll take any progress over none. And dare I say, I think I've got the forum more organized and up to date in coding then this website. Though to be fair, I'm using Proboards for the new Mystic Legends forum.
Message Update: Sunday May 8, 2016
Wait. I'm alive? For realz!?
Yes, I'm still here, ha ha. Still though, 2016 and STILL no new updates to my website in terms of the comic? I wish I could say I was working on some huge secret project here, but quite frankly, I've just been BUSY with all sorts of other things. In particular, my job life. I ended up suffering quite a bit in the job world and I've been focused on getting back on track on that world, so that I don't end up suffering to the point of not even being able to afford my food bills. Speaking of updates, this website is now SERIOUSLY due to for an upgrade in the HTML coding and web design department, due to the advances of the Dreamweaver program and all that. I know I could just start hard coding the website from here on, but I hate having to hard code when I don't have to. It takes way longer to build a website that way IMO. I know why hard coding exsits and why it's important for game designers and web designers to understand it, but programs like Dreamweaver exist for a reason. That said, there's one other big offender as to why I haven't updated in a long time... Final Fantasy XIV. The first MMO I've ever played to actually draw my attention away from both other free time things and EVEN OTHER VIDEOGAMES to the point of which each time I now type "/playtime" into the chat window of FFXIV, I make myself sad. D:
Speaking of Final Fantasy, anyone looking forward to FFXV? I say it's about bloody time we got that game. Lets hope it doesn't pull a Duke Nukem forever on us. That also said, I haven't posted any videogaming related news in quite some time, but I'm too late on most of that stuff now anyway. To sum it up, Cloud Strife in SSB4, Bayonetta in SSB4, Star Fox Zero, Star Ocean 5, TMNT: Turtles in Manhattan, and more I don't feel like listing here right now.
I'd like to talk more about it, but instead, I have something more important to bring up. It concerns this website. For some odd reason, all the search engines are now blacklisting this website, and it's annoying me greatly. I did a manual check with some help to see if the webpages got hacked in some means, but I turned up NOTHING on that. I'm tempted to call up Google to run another scan on this website to figure out why they think this website has malware on it, but I'm going to try and fix this with a particular strategy first. I've taken down every HTML file from this website and re-uploaded them all. I've also removed certain images that were linked in from other sites due to not being availabe anymore or for other reasons. Lets see if that does anything. As such, changes were made to some of the pages. "Forum Pictures", "Art Gallery", and "Gamertags" were all stripped down for now. The "Forum" button now just leads to my Capcom Unity profile, since a new Mystic Legends forum still hasn't been made yet. My own Gamertags (including my FFXIV profile) are now found here on the main index page along with the news.
More details about why Mystic Legends hasn't updated will be posted at some point down the road with an actual new comic update. It'll mostly NOT be related to what's going on with this website as of right now.

At this point, all I can do is apologize for making you guys wait this long.
With that out of the way, I should probably explain what the hell I've been doing this whole time:
As you may have noticed, I updated the main index again, including putting up a new title picture. This is an area I've actually become increasingly concerned about. I've taken web page design classes (college intro classes only at the moment) to try and get better at this stuff. I learned about a nifty feature known as "floats" and wanted to apply that to my main website. Unfortunately, either from an update or simply because my current version of Dreamweaver is too old, I can't seem to get the same effect that I got with my college project. This leaves me concerned about how much knowledge I have in Web Design. I knew I had a lot to learn, but yeesh.
I'm also concerned about how good I am at art these days. I'm actually getting rather tired of working at my current level. If my later episodes are of any indictation, I've been trying new things to keep myself going, and hopefully the new things I experiment with will help improve my art style and make things more exciting for me. Progress has been rather slow in that field though. I'm beginning to think I should find a college art teacher now, but there's so many different kinds of art that I wouldn't even know where to start there. I'm aiming for Anime style art myself, and it's the hand drawn style I'd like to make for the Mystic Legends series. (Animated scenes included)
Finally, there's the HUGE breakdown that occured at ATLF about 3 years ago that left me stunned for about a year and a half. I had almost reached the point of where I said similar lines to a guy in a Newsground video called "The man who won't rhyme". Thankfully, I've mostly recovered from that, and I learned a few very important things about dealing with people/fanbases on the internet because of that.
Those 3 factors combined lead me to a screeching halt on making comic updates. I was suddenly concered that I just wasn't good enough anymore. Something of which I never took the time to really think about before. And before I knew it, I lost sight of why I started the comic in the first place. That reason being that... well... it's fun. Getting better is just part of the road of making a comic, and I'm never going to get better if I don't try right? And so here we are, with a new comic update... finally. It's not a main episode though, but a special one I made for Megaman fans and Capcom Unity, a forum I'm typically seen at these days.
And with that, lets get videogame news out of the way!
First off, I'm late to say these things, but the returning vets Zelda, Marth, AND Sonic have been confirmed for SSB4. And speaking of characters, who here is excited for the newcomer addition of Rosalina? I wasn't expecting her, and I seriously underestimated her popularity, but I'm SO trying her when I get the game.
... and I think that's all I wanted to say, lol. Nothing new on Tales of Xillia 2. ... and for that matter, pretty much all the new games I want now are coming out in 2014. There's only 2 games left from this year that I want, but I've been biding my time on, which would be The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and Assassin's Creed 4.
Message Update: Sunday, June 16, 2013

Once again, Nintendo has snagged the majority of my interest. That's two years in a row you've won me over Nintendo. Special thanks to that X trailer and Super Smash Bros.
Also, I feel the need to point out that I've finally uploaded a play video on my Youtube channel. It was just to show something off to a Capcom Unity member, but if it interests you guys, let me know if I should upload more playthrough videos. I'll try to remember to push the record button every time I pop on a game that I can record.
