My Current Obsession: Chocobo

My Current Obsession started out as a way for me to share whatever tv show I was obsessing about at the moment but then I thought "tv isn't the only thing I get obsessed" and thus we have my current gaming obsession!

White Mage Chocobo is cutest
Before this month I hadn't played any video games since somewhere around the beginning of the year. It's actually kind of crazy for me to go that long without playing games, but nothing had really been catching my interest.

Anyway, I recently read the entire CTRL + ALT + DEL comic series and it made me really want to play something. So I made my way over to Gamestop to pick out a game. I found Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon for $8.99 and figured it looked cure and it was cheap so why not?

And let me tell you, I got a lot more than I expected out of $8.99!

First of all, the graphics are pretty amazing and there's a lot of cut scenes to show them off.

Second, the story's pretty interesting, so I haven't gotten bored.
Third, it's turn-based, but only while you're in the dungeons. So, if you just want to walk around the town and explore you can do so without fighting any bad guys. There's a lot of side quests where you can help out the townspeople to up your level and such too.

In case you're wondering about the storyline, it goes like this: everyone in the town has lost some or all of their memories and Chocobo is the only one with the ability to get them back.

Basically, if you like cute, turn-based games then you definitely have to check out Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon!


  1. I LOVE Chocobos! I just introduced my daughter to the chocobo song, and she loves it! I wish they were real! I'll have to look into this game.

  2. I adore Final Fantasy! I was SO obsessed when I was in middle school and high school. After getting home from school, you would most likely find me in front of my TV playing a FF game instead of doing my homework...oops.

    I miss seeing the Chocobos in them! They are so cute!


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
