Chocobos are using Twitter to race in Final Fantasy XIV

Final Fantasy XIV confused the shit out of me. I played it for about a month, and I’ll probably go back to it, but god damn I had no idea what I was doing. But now there is an anchor in that game, something I know and understand, and...

Fat Chocobo plush is as huggable as you'd expect

I've been pretty into fat Chocobos (or are they just big chocoboned?) since Brett wrote this thing on getting into MMOs through Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I still likely won't play it, though, and I won't buy this bad boy, either. W...

Chocobo Racing 3D has most likely been canned

In case you weren't aware, Square Enix showed off a video for Chocobo Racing 3D a few years back, and nothing ever really came of it. Everyone assumed it was either still in development or canceled, but Siliconera talked to the creator of ...

Lightning Returns at TGS: Open worlds, cool costumes

I like Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. I dug it from our very first hands-on preview, and I'm now I'm digging it even more after playing the new Tokyo Game Show floor demo. Some felt that the first preview was a bit linear. Line...

PAX: My favorite cosplay of the show ... so far

There is a surprising amount of great cosplay at PAX. People walk around in some pretty elaborate and sometimes beautiful outfits. While all impressive, most of it is the same thing you normally see: a Lara Croft here, a Master Chief there....

Chocobo a cappella is... umm... wut

Uhhhh... here you go! Your dose of weirdness for the weekend! Enjoy! The comedy duo of Max and Sam decided to start a mini-series in which they record a cappella renditions of Final Fantasy songs. As much as I enjoy a good a cappella perfo...

Chocolina, Final Fantasy XIII-2's hot cosplay shop owner

In our massive Final Fantasy XIII-2 preview I talked about the game's crazy Chocobo-obsessed merchant. Her name is Chocolina, and she is a total nut job. First off, she's wearing feathers over her arms and hands, and what looks to be a smal...

Anime Expo: Wakfu inspired by Final Fantasy

Square-Enix may have a little more to do with the world of Wakfu than just publishing the French-developed MMORPG that is set for open beta later this fall. During the Anime Expo panel “An Introduction to the World of WAKFU” Squ...

Chocobo Racing returns to 3DS

  Here's something I'd never thought we would see again. Square Enix is developing a new Chocobo Racing game for the 3DS. Tenatively titled Chocobo Racing 3D, I assume it will consist largely of riding on the backs of chocobos in some ...

Taking it to the streets: What is a chocobo?

It's a simple question, really: What is a chocobo? Anyone in the gaming community could tell you in an instant and most likely pop in a copy of some Final Fantasy game and show you as well. But what about the random man on the street? Is F...

Square Enix trademarks 'Chocobo's Crystal Tower'

Chocobo's Crystal Tower. That sounds cute. It also sounds dungeon crawler-y. That's fine by me, as I love dungeons that are mysterious. Of course, I'm just guessing. This is only a trademark. We're guessing its a new game. Square Enix filed...

Game Debate to the Death: What are your favorite RPGs?

RetroforceGO! Episode 43: Squaresoft

Interview with Chocobo Mystery Dungeon developer h.a.n.d.
