    After 26 minutes of Rich pontificating various stuff like death and its relation to narrative in games - we get back down to Ivalice and stomp some mud holes in many many fools. Job class planning, sensible politics being ignored in favor of stupidity, super horny demons, and more await on the latest poorly planned but sort of competently executed random battle we call DAAAAAAAAAAMN CHOCOBO!!!

    Damn Chocobo Episode 109: Final Fantasy Tactics part 5

    After 19 minutes of discussion on Snake Eyes (the new GI Joe movie), Masters of the Universe Revelations, and the effects of personal baggage in relation to a fandom perhaps loving a property a bit too much.
    Afterwards we jump back into Final Fantasy Tactics where we learn important lessons about presuming things will get easier, recruit a sweet as gun dude, question our team build choices, beat up some more random dudes, and a whole lot more on the latest fan favorite revival of an 80s franchise with a very very passionate fanbase we call DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN CHOCOBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Damn Chocobo Episode 108: Final Fantasy Tactics Part 4

    After 16 minutes of talking about X-Men and what kind of bad stories are worse we jump back into Final Fantasy Tactics just in time for the plot to really get kicking.  Betrayal, deaths of the innocent, some animal rescue work, more betrayal, and a whole lot of completely wrecking guys who think they know how to fight await on the latest blood drenched battlefield we all know as Daaaaaaaamn Chocoboooooooo!!!

Ramza being clueless to how is family truly operates, Delita having a rough time, Argath (or Algus depending on your version of the game) being a complete asshat, and a whole bunch of pricks with good motivations but absolutely awful actions await on the next surprisingly consistently released episode of DAAAAAAAAAAAMN CHOCOBOOOOO!!!

    Damn Chocobo Episode 105: Final Fantasy Tactics

    The beginning of a new era of Damn Chocobo! As an experiment we're going to release episodes of this next playthrough in shorter chunks and HOPEFULLY far more frequently! Can we keep it up? Will we develop a regular and consistent release schedule? PROBABLY NOT but never say we don't take chances!
    Fifteen minutes after our usual nonsense we begin this new (and possibly short) era of the show we begin the LOOOOOOONG teased run through the overwhelmingly loved Final Fantasy Tactics. Is it the best game to bare the series name? JOIN US AS WE FIND OUT!  This episode features us discussing our history with this game and play up through the prologue! 
    As always if you have questions, concerns, comments or just wanna say f**k off - you can reach us at damnchocobo@gmail.com OR at pretty much all of the usual Social Media sites @DamnChocobo

The chocobros just send it

Love these guys. Good funny people with great detail with the FF series and sometimes Zelda :). The special episodes are also great. Love the rants and arguments. Check them out!!

The Podcast of the Decade.

Final Fantasy is one of my absolute favorite games to play, and the concept of this show is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a podcast. I’ve tried for others in the past, but when I found these guys a couple weeks ago while at work, I was excited and yet intrigued by the name. They don’t just talk about Final Fantasy, but other game franchises I know and love dearly as well. I love how this is their way to stay friends after their depart into adult life in the world. I wish I had a friend like that or even knew these guys personally as well. They keep my work day non-stressful because I’m always grinning about their rants and petty arguments. I will definitely be listening to these guys as long as they keep coming out with more episodes no matter the time length between shows. Also, love the choice of music Rich likes to play at the end of every episode. Keep it up guys. You got a five star rating from me.

Very Enjoyable

Found this podcast because I was in the mood to listen to some Final Fantasy 8 talk. Love the rapport between these guys. Will be sticking around and listening to their backlog. Good job and thanks!
