Square Roots - THE Classic RPG Podcast

Square Roots is like a book club, but for classic RPGs! Each episode John, Matthew, Jim and Vanessa play through another chunk of one of your favorite RPGs, from Final Fantasy through Chrono Trigger. Are they experts? No. Are they qualified? Absolutely not. Are they good at RPGs? Probably not. But they're the fun kind of dumb, and that's what counts.

Mass Effect 1 - Part One

Forgive sick Johnny’s heavy breathing this ep, his nose was heckka plugged.

It's Janu-Warey! Poor, poor hick Jenkins. BimJanks, Eden, Evil and Kimothy Shepherd unite to fight the evil, evil Nihilus after he kills… wait. Wait. Saren is the bad guy? But Nihilus is the bad guy name!

What’s the deal with the Epiphany Witch? Why is Jim’s neighbour on a campaign of misinformation? Is Kittizard or Ferians a better fantasy name for the Turians? Do the Turians even have genitals? Is Ashley a big ol’ Space Racist? Has Jim played Flandia? Do Asari look like whatever you find attractive?

This Week: We find the beacon on Eden Prime and prove Saren's guilt on the Citadel.
Next Week: We rescue Liara T'Soni and find the secret of Feros!

Jan 1, 2018

Nadia Oxford from USGamer and Axe of the Blood God joins us to dissect the strange relationships between this visual novel / text adventure and Chrono Trigger, as well as its role as a map for Chrono Cross. Things to enjoy this week: Jim getting angry at Radical Dreamers and Chrono Cross yet again, self-insert Chrono fan fiction, Radical Dreamers as a management parable, fashion montages, fushigi, and hyper gory text descriptions.

This week: We play through the first ending of Radical Dreamers!
Next week: We finish Eden Prime and the Citadel to take command of the SR Normandy in Mass Effect!

The Bard's Tale 2004 - Part Four

Things draw to a close and we try to end on a positive note on what we liked about this strange game. We track through the three endings, discuss the stated theme of the game, and give long, long sighs as we hit one of the most weirdest endgame of any RPG we've seen.

This Week: We play Chapters 11 through 14 of The Bard's Tale.
Next Week: We radically dream!

The Bard's Tale 2004 - Part Three

Hi! I'm Hal Sparks. Do you remember the 2000s? What a wild and crazy, yet somehow more innocent age. Snooki? Tatu? Eminem hair? We dive into a time of Urbz: Sims in the City and gay panic in this wall-to-wall-awesome episode of Square Roots.

Questions asked in this episode: why does Jim hate Chris Pratt? Does Jeff Goldblum have an orgy ship? Will Vanessa stop singing about the Nuckelvee? Is Scottish a language or dialect? What exactly is a flesh family?

Plus: The Vanessa and John Show, featuring their special guest, Matthew!

This Week: We play through Chapters 7 through 10 of the 2004 Bard's Tale.
Next Week: We play Chapters 11 through 14 of The Bard's Tale.

The Bard's Tale 2004 - Part Two

The tables are turned as Jim, John and Vanessa lighten up a little on The Bard's Tale while Matthew goes ballistic. John finds solace in an undead horse, Vanessa loves the Crone, Jim doesn't get the performance issues, and Matthew realizes the game may be tuned to encourage in-app purchases on iOS.

Why would Matthew start singing the Bodyguard song? What's a Kunal Trow? What's the difference between a Fnarf and a Hrafn? Will The Bard even sexually harass a Valkyrie? What the heck is a Gesa anyhow? Why is the game pulling a Halo 1 library with constantly spawning enemies? Why are Jim's free cheats better than Matthew's paid buffs?

The answers to these and more on a blockbuster, action-packed Square Roots!

This Week: We play through Chapters 4 through 6 of the 2004 Bard's Tale.
Next Week: We play Chapters 7 through 10 of The Bard's Tale.

The Bard's Tale - Part 1

Yes, that's not a typo. We're covering the, uh, classic? RPG The Bard's Tale, and by that we mean the 2004 release that first came out on PS2 and Xbox. You might have a few questions, like: why are we playing The Bard's Tale? Was it written by Adam Carolla? Will we ever see Spiderman: Too Many Spidermen? Why has Matt never seen Big Bird's legs? Is Infamous an RPG? Does the town slut shame a widow? What the heck is a Kunal Trow? Just how dark can Vanessa make this podcast?

Parasite Eve Part 3

Planes explode! Boats sink! Daniels catch on fire! Parasite Eve's Disc 3 Crazy continues as we wrap up the bonkers story line with an insane finale. Really. Babies are shot. Mermen emerge. The statue of liberty is covered in goo. This brings up a ton of questions this week: is Parasite Eve some Ghostbusters II fan fiction? Or is Parasite Eve's Manhattan the world liberals want? Did the Jerry the janitor try to foil Klamp's sperm storage? Why is the final boss a garbage pail kid? How many times will John say "Baby Sack" this episode? Is their jumpiness at fire a sign of PTSD?

Listen for these and some hints to Jim's dark Kansas past in an exciting new episode of Square Roots!

This Week: We finish Day 5 and 6, ending our Parasite Eve run!
Next Week: We play through Chapters 1 through 3 of the 2004 Bard's Tale.

Parasite Eve Part 2

We're back and still crushing more mitochondria! It's a dog-shooting, sperm finding episode of Square Roots as we get over halfway through Square's bizarre survival horror visual novel JRPG masterpiece.

Questions asked today: do you know the Meatball Man? Is Carl Winslow actually in the game? Was Lorraine's death preventable? Does Matthew really think sentient poop is a good superpower? Is Ms. Nusebaum the secret best character in the game? Has any Squaresoft game ever had that much sperm in it? Where does Eve carry that sperm anyhow? What's Stephanie's Choice? AND SO MANY MORE.

This episode: We finish Day 3 and 4 of Parasite Eve!

Nov 13, 2017

Parasite Eve - Part 1

Parasite Eve: survival horror JRPG? Or is it a visual novel? This is the first of many, many questions we have during the first chunk of this bizarre game. Others include: What the heck are the rules surrounding Eve's power? Should we be calling her Melissa? Has Vanessa won Best Character Name of All Time? Why won't Jim plug his podcast at his church? Did Daniel really shoot a kid? What's up with Klamp anyhow? Is polygony illegal in the United States? Are we right in not thinking good things are gonna happen with Ben and the dog?

Chrono Trigger - Part 5

Finally! Vanessa has [REDACTED] the [REDACTED]! CONGRATULATIONS! 

But! Also! We finish Chrono Trigger and pretty much all get the same ending, except for Matt, but Matt got removed from the timestream and can't maintain his presence in this timeline. This is an all-singing-all-dancing episode featuring Memories of Chrono, Mama Don't Take My Chrono Chrome Away, and also some very, very very very very bad rapping. Oh! And we announce the next game!

Questions addressed: Does Queen Zeal recognize Magus as her son? Why can't Vanessa tell a Dark Carnival and Psycho Circus apart? Are conveyor belt fights better or worse than elevator fights? Should we be pouring one out for Toma? Is a JK Execution in bad taste? Do robots really need to be gendered? Who does John hate Geno?

This episode: We play when we are taken aboard the Blackbird until the end of the game!

Next episode: We play Day 1 and 2 of exciting mystery game!

Chrono Trigger Part 4

Chuck Charles hosts the premiere show for dating fictional video game characters - Create-A-Combo! Who will our contestant Vanessa choose? Her new romance chosen, we start asking a whole bunch of questions about this chunk of Chrono Trigger, including: building a machine that harnesses the power of Lavos couldn't be a terrible idea, could it? Does Giga Gaia have a giant dong? How did the Dark Ages people get their magic anyhow? What's it like living in the body of a giant tomato? Why do animator perverts put dongs in everything?

Find out these answers and so many more in the latest episode of Square Roots!

This week: We hit the climactic turning point of Lavos Beckons!

Hello, fellow lovers of the macabre and / or mouse-based action combat! Are you ready to be spooked? Are you in the mood for hyper-gory VGA-era RPG adventure games? ARE YOU? You better be, because Mikel Reparaz from Vidjagame Apocalypse joins us and he darn well finished this first person dungeon crawler for our benefit. So you'll play this creaky game from Horrorsoft and YOU'LL LIKE IT.

On this special bonus episode we explore the strange worlds of this episodic RPG and ask: why are old PC RPGs so much less accessible than their console equivalents? What's up with the crazy amount of gore? Are the policemen just made that we touched them?

Chrono Trigger Part 3

We're into the thick of things with Chrono Trigger as we hit everyone's favorite part of the game: Magus's Castle! Yep, that's right! Flea! Slash! Ozzie! Our panel of experts including noted pervazoid Jim Banks, loveable curmudgeon Matthew Van Zandt, mysterious genius Vanessa Girl and Manic Pixie Dream Bear John Brandon ask the questions you've always wanted answers to: is Ayla really just Cathy? Does Ayla even have a tail? Is she hitting on Lucca? Is Lucca even interested? What's Vanessa's beef with Mister Tumness? Did the Reptites draw wieners on everyones faces after passing out from the "soup"? Also! A special guest appearance by everyone's favorite Badyear Racer, Johnny!

Chrono Trigger Part 2

After a very, very long Blade Runner talk and Jim gets the future year wrong, we settle in for our usual expert panel on all your burning Chrono Trigger questions, such as; why does Matthew constantly misquote Judge Dredd? Did they get wet after being squirted out from Heckran's Cave? Is Vanessa using jet bike racing as some kind of euphemism? Why is Matthew heck-bent on getting Vanessa an eight ball? What even IS an eight ball? Are those white fluffy things big cats or big chickens?

Find out these answers and so many more in the latest episode of Square Roots!

Chrono Trigger Part 1

We start our new time-hopping adventure in a talk that gets very, very mired in discussing what would and wouldn't be ethical to do with your inert clone. Other questions raised: Is this a total palette swap of a game? What floor does Lucca live on anyhow? What is the technology level of 1000 AD Crono Trigger? Should we advertise for companies on spec? Is Secret of Mana the distant future of Chrono Trigger? Can we tell the difference between KISS and Insane Clown Posse albums? It's perfectly natural to cuddle your clone, right? Should some yums be yucked? 

Find out these answers and so many more in the latest episode of Square Roots!

This week: We begin Chrono Trigger, and play until the bridge boss after the trial!
Next week: We play until the end of Tata and the Frog and before leaving for the prehistoric world.

Final Fantasy XII Part 9

Vanessa and Matthew don't like the idea of playing Darkseed 2 and Beyond the Beyond at the same time and take steps to change history as we settle on what to play next. As we hit the end of Final Fantasy XII questions are asked: Is Pennywise a total CILF? Is Venat a creepy life coach? Is Vayne the Justin Trudeau of Final Fantasy? Do many good games end with terrible muscle man boss fights? Are there too many liberties taken with the translation? Where the heck were Venat and Vayne walking to anyway? Is Fran just overdramatic?

Find out these answers and so many more in the latest episode of Square Roots!

This week: We finish Final Fantasy XII!
Next week: We play until the end of the trial in.... Darkseed 2 and Beyond the Beyond? No.

Final Fantasy XII Part 8

The next game is announced! And it's real bad. But maybe Matthew and Vanessa can have a chance to put right what once went wrong. We go deep inside Pharos which, as must be pointed out, is a large building and not the ghost kid from Persona 3. Questions addressed in this episode: do scarves cancel out fedoras? Is a boss really called Slit the Fish Monster? Have you tried a Final Fantasy XII cleanse? Did we just fight a Hatchimal? Will Vanessa make a million dollars with her Manse idea? What are Dude Wipes and why do they upset Vanessa anyway? What does Fy Forse Fints mean?

This week: We complete Pharos and get ready for the last adventure.
Next week: We finish Final Fantasy XII!

Final Fantasy XII Part 7

We dabble in converting the podcast to pure ASMR after Matthew was swept away in a hurricane. Questions asked in this episode: Is Daddy Cid really just Fancy Auron? Is Port Balfonheim a pleasant hive of scum and villany? Will Jim and John out themselves as Vayne Supporters after C** Fest '94? What the heck is a Manse? Can a three wheeled car really work?

This week: We travel through Draklor's Lab through to the gates of Pharos.
