The world of Fayste Nastale is a curious one, full of dangers and wonders. Ideally, it is a fantasy realm parallel to a world of our own, thus allowing human beings from earth to pass through its portal. This is where you will venture and, hopefully, find friends of your own.

Ever heard of Mt. Olympus? It is where the Greek Gods supposedly lived, and if you've heard any of the old legends, you'll know that there is never peace up there. There's always some sort of argument or disaster among the Gods-- it happens in life too. Come here to rant about life's problems and, perhaps, even get some advice.

Thebusan: Guys! I got Bravely Default for $20! WOOOOO Dec 22, 2014 20:37:49 GMT -8
Omio: Nice. :3 ...looks like my priority's shifted to a WiiU, though. Dec 23, 2014 16:52:11 GMT -8
Kriven_Too_Lazy_To_Sign_In: Wii U is fabulous. It should be everybody's priority. Jan 15, 2015 3:52:39 GMT -8
Kriven: I logged in. Jan 15, 2015 3:53:20 GMT -8
Kriven: Wii U is still fabulous. Jan 15, 2015 3:53:28 GMT -8
Omio: :3 I know it is. Likely happening at the end of the month. Jan 15, 2015 5:48:56 GMT -8
Kriven: Are you into Pikmin at all? Pikmin 3 is easily the best game in the franchise. Jan 16, 2015 10:42:13 GMT -8
Thebusan: I did play pikmin 3. It is definitely better than Pikmin 2. Jan 17, 2015 19:31:21 GMT -8
Kriven: I didn't think the Rock or Flying Pikmin would change things up as much as they have... They both really mix up how you approach combat and treasure hunting. Jan 18, 2015 2:38:22 GMT -8
Kriven: Still think they should be Black and Pink Pikmin though... breaking the naming convention... Jan 18, 2015 2:38:49 GMT -8
thebusan: I need to stop playing Animal Crossing @_@ Jan 21, 2015 23:17:50 GMT -8
thebusan: Fresh Off the Boat is the shit Feb 6, 2015 23:57:02 GMT -8
Kriven: I only caught one episode and thought it was just okay. The wife is definitely going to carry the show. Feb 8, 2015 19:54:13 GMT -8
thebusan: It's so real. It definitely succeeds in addressing Asian-Americans as the viewer first, and it is definitely representative of Asian-American families. Feb 11, 2015 4:09:47 GMT -8
thebusan: The mom does a good job but I see Eddie doing a great job. I don't really know what people who aren't Asian are looking for though. Feb 11, 2015 4:10:52 GMT -8
Kriven: Asian Modern Family Feb 13, 2015 11:50:31 GMT -8
thebusan: Then I suppose it doesn't quite meet that expectation but also doesn't quite fail. A lot of Asian Americans are looking for a good portrayal of growing up Asian American on Network TV. Feb 16, 2015 7:14:52 GMT -8
thebusan: Obviously one show can't portray the experiences of millions of people, but I'd say it's been pretty representative of the experience so far. (Save for the fact that the parents speak to each other in English) Feb 16, 2015 7:16:29 GMT -8
Kriven: I think this is going to be one of those situations where the show is good because its portrayal is accurate, but it's going to generally fail for that same reason. Real life is what most people are trying to escape from when they watch TV. Feb 24, 2015 14:30:03 GMT -8
thebusan: It's not that real. Although I do predict it will get cancelled. The fact that it's a tv show alone means it has a high chance of getting cancelled. Feb 27, 2015 16:21:32 GMT -8
