Final Fantasy XIV: “Chocobos” Renamed “Horsebirds” (Site NSFW)

Square Enix’s bizarre decision to rename “Chocobos” to “horsebirds” for the Japanese version of Final Fantasy XIV has given rise to a storm of criticism and a grovelling and unconvincing apology from the designers.

Horsebirds?

evrfighter2525d ago

Way to go Square-Enix. What happened to this company...

Wow

Chocobos: one of the most popular creations of any game ever, been successful and adored for years, has never once been criticised, and square enix felt they had to make a change and call them horse...birds...

Sounds similar to what they did to turn based combat

I guess this has something to do with "westernizing" games... *sigh*

D: Horsebirds that's ugly they might as well change the name of the game to something stupid...er.

Let me guess. No one actually read this to see why it was done and to see that it was changed back already right?

Come on. You wouldn't read that title, think that's the stupidest thing in the world and then come straight to the comments to say so? On top of that, the fact that this was a consideration is still amazingly stupid.

I almost always come straight to the comments to find out if it's worth the read first, unless I'm really interested in the s8ubject. I don't want to support stupid internet journalism by giving hits to stupid internet journalists!

Edit: @Machinamaw: Bubbles!!! Where do you guys find this $hit!

@DaTruth

No I would read it and go OH that's stu... wait... It says NSFW in the title. It's from Sankakucomplex. Oh well not news just them trashing Final Fantasy XIV again with flaimbait headlines.

Why this site hasn't been banned from being submitted is beyond me. They are still touting their "You can only play FFXIV 8 hours a week" Crap as fact when it's LONG since been proven complete BS. They are not new they are hit grabbers and any site that needs to have NSFW in the title is probably the same.
