    Damn Chocobo Episode 126 - Year End Spectacular 2022 featuring TMNT Arcade games

    Rachel and Jake sit down to bid goobye to 2022 the only way they know how. By sitting down with some drinks and playing old games while also swearing a lot. This year we sit down with the recent TMNT "Cowabunga Collection" and play the original Arcade Game, the arcade version of Turtles in Time, and then to a bit of fooling about in the Hyperstone Heist because why the heck not? Along with nostalgic memories and about a billion button clicks we talk about our "TOP 10 THINGS/EVENTS/WHATEVERS" of 2022.

    Jake and Rich (or is it.... Rachel?!?!?!?) get back to business after a somewhat insane delay to continue our run through Kingdom Hearts 3!
    Game talk starts around 25 minutes in where to discuss Sora talking toooons of trash, old threats seeming somewhat aimless, the main characters also being somewhat aimless, the games lack of any real damand on the player to be skilled, why some worlds are excting and others are not, and much much more (not to mention Jake frequently drumming on his table - seriously dude wtf!) on the latest episode of DAAAAAAAAAAMN CHOCOBOOOOOOO!!!!

    After 35 minutes of discussing the early episodes of Obi Wan and giving updates on our collecting hobbies (YES I KNOW WE SHOULD HAVE GOT TO THE POINT) we almost kind of start talking about Kingdom Hearts 3.... but mostly spend the majority of the episode just trying to recap the previous games in the series. 
    Sooo uh... enjoy that. Please don't make this your first episode. Or maybe it's a great first one? I have no idea.

Im a hero to these kids Taylor ,

Congrats Rachel!

Been following the pod for so long and I was sad the pod wasn’t active, but I’m happy you’re finding your way and decided to share with us! Loved listening to Rich, and we’ll be listening even if they aren’t there!

This is a fun podcast that feels like talking nerd stuff with ur friends

It’d be cool if you did FF1+2 dawn of souls next. Just to kinda juxtapose kh3 to the remake of ff1

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.
