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.

Final Fantasy XII - Part 2

Have you seen Judge Reinhold? He was last seen in the company of a mysterious woman with hair described as "Lord Vayne-like". If not: take a listen as we push through dungeons and mines and fight goopy cloecas; we meet Final Fantasy XII's cast of Judges, including Gabranth, Ghis, Judy, and Joe Brown; Matthew insults the entire cast of Wet Hot American Summer; there's far too much Batman talk; we get confused between The Fog, The Mist and Myst; Jim gets a proper noun overload; and we fly to the Bespin-like city of Bhujerba.

This week: We hit up the Lhusu Mines!
Next week: We plunge the depths of the Raithwall Tomb!

Final Fantasy XII - Part 1

The gang gets exposition overload as Final Fantasy XII opens the firehouse of names and places of importance in the world of Ivalice. But that's not all! Jim got incepted and doesn't remember a thing from his last playthrough. What are they trying to hide? Other topics discussed include: Kevin Spacey's punchability, Cardassian shoe lines, levelling down, Vanessa's theory of ranking and clothes-wearning, The Suite Life of Vaan and Panelo, a varient of the classic raft math problem, John keeps saying Depeche Mode weird, alligator jaw formation, the job system induced anxiety, the glamorous return of the Bullshit Minigame corner, shipping Balthier and Vaan, and so much more!

This week: We escape Rabanastre Castle and fight Firemane!
Next week: We finish the Lhusu mines.

Persona 3 - Part 10

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

Finally, we end the scourge of Nyx, the Death God and finish Persona 3! Topics covered today include: casting Persona 3 with TGIF sitcom stars; visual metaphors for finger stuff; sudden difficulty spikes; and a return to Matthew with his Secrets of Life segment. Many questions are answered: was the MC just sleepy? What happened to Takaya? Is Aigis the secret main character? What could have made the ending to Wonder Woman better? Should we even forgive the Gourmet King? Are JRPGs just too damn long? Is Persona 4 a classic?

This week: We finish Persona 3!
Next week: We move to the city of Rabanastre in Final Fantasy XII and play through the fete at the palace!

Persona 3 - Part 8

THE NEXT GAME IS ANNOUNCED! YOU WON'T BELIEVE ONDORE'S THIGHS!

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

What is the meaning of life? Why live in terror when you could die in peace? Ryoji offers these questions in his final bargain as we close out the year in the classic Atlus JRPG Persona 3. There's more exams, we go on Christmas dates, and there's an overstuffed Vanessa's Social Ladder too! Also, Johnny selected the wrong microphone in Audacity so he sounds terrible. Sorry about that. Other topics include: the sad life of the Gourmet King, whether Shinto and Buddism are the same thing, moving to the brand new utopia of Amestris, Vanessa's military takeover of Amestris, and Zeboyd Games's new RPG Cosmic Star Heroine.

This week: We play to the end of December!
Next week: We finish Persona 3!

Persona 3 - Part 8

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

 

Things don't go super well for the Persona gang, but Jim, John, Matthew and Vanessa aren't worried. It's zag after zag in a twisty, plot heavy episode of Persona 3! We meet Ryoji! There's a trip to Kyoto! There's a stealth section! Questions asked include: Are eyebuds gonna be a thing? Can you get sick from swimming in man soup? Was Dumbledore evil? Is American Domino's Cheesy Bread better than Canadian Domino's Cheesy Bread? What's Ryoji's deal, and why is he Vanessa's husbando? Is red bean paste good? Is Yukari flirting with Mitsuru? How are Rock Star Jesus and Jin still alive? Why would the corporeal embodiment of death enroll in high school? 

This week: We play to the end of November!
Next week: We play to the end of December!

Square Roots: The Gang Gets Crucified!

Join Matt, Jim, John, and Nessa for the latest ep of Square Roots! We talk Persona 3 Full Moon Operation 7! We drink too much and smoke too much and vape too much and curse too much and generally do things that teenagers would think is cool but is really kind of embarrassing for a bunch of 30 something adults.

Persona 3 - Part 6

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

So many important questions today as we press through September. Was Liam Neeson in Surf Ninjas? Was Zangief originally a villain? Is Ted Cruz the Zodiac Killer, or merely three children stacked up pretending to be a grown-up? Did Kenny go all The Good Son? Was Anne Heche in The Good Son? What was the one weakness of The Good Son? What happens to people when they're driving during the dark hour? Will John's request to have a coffin that's just a giant fleshlight be honored? Does Vanessa want to wear a dress made of American cheese? Will the gang ever stop mispronouncing the team members' names?

This week: We play through the October Full Moon Operation!
Next week: We play through the November Full Moon Operation!

Persona 3 - Part 5

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

What happened to Cerberus? Did the Ninja Turtles take the red pill? Why does John pronounce Tarot weird? Does Lolligoth really like Junpei? Is Chidori inspired by Steve Martin? Why did John not get a date to the summer festival? Is Fuuka's ab-abber machine doing more than tickling her? What happens when Junpei makes Jim wear a yukata? Why should everyone hate Steiner, and what does it have to do with Ray Donovan? Is that Ray Liotta show called John Blurp: Blue Cop?

This week: We play through the September Full Moon Operation!
Next week: We play through the October Full Moon Operation!

Persona 3 - Part 4

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

Yukari finally confronts Mitsuru on her drama and the Countess throws wine in Theresa's face; things get very Ghostbustersy ten years ago thanks to the Kijiro Group's shenanigans; the very regrettable Operation: Babe Hunt; the detailed simulation that is Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball; there are several covers of Persona songs by talented singers John and Vanessa; and finally, this is basically the Breastcast as we discuss a wide range of breast topics, not limited to support, animation and sizing.

This week: We play through the August Full Moon Operation!

Persona 3 - Part 3

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

We discover what happens when Matthew is missing from an episode: we get super, super creepy. Topics covered this episode include: nonconsentual clothing options, Marduk, and the Male Gaze; more Adam Jr. and the Bachelorette; the legality of Japanese Love Hotels; pink goo; that one teacher who got pregnant from her student; the growing mysteries of the Kirijo group; Akihiko and Yukari's sexy showers; the game getting so mad at John's dumbness that it stops and tells him how to solve a puzzle.

Persona 3 - Part 2

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

We storm the school in this week's Square Roots! An epic, spooky ghost-story filled Full Moon Operation is just the start though, as we get some new team members, battle some baddies, and maybe, MAYBE talk about mid-terms. Topics covered include: John's disturbing paternal instincts; Parent Fight Club; we rename the Quest Log the Velvet Compendium; Shuji's Pun Bonanza; Kathy Griffin's hair; Vanessa climbs the social ladder; the game gets real with the bullying; we learn the dark secrets of the Jim-Nasium and are locked inside, and so much more!

Persona 3 - Part 1

Please be aware due to the nature of the game suicide is discussed.

ALRIGHT! Finally, we move on to a real meaty, grindy, turn-basedey game! And we LOVE it. In this episode we answer a lot of questions: Bernie Janders or Best Jugs? Are evokers real guns? Does sleeping in class make you more popular? Is Shuji a creep? Who would show up at GeckoCon 2016? What's the difference between the PS2 and PSP version of Persona 3? Any difference between playing as a girl or boy? Is there a femur inside AJ Junior?

This week: We play through the first Full Moon Operation!
Next week: We play through the second Full Moon Operation!

Kingdom Hearts - Part 6

NEXT GAME ANNOUNCEMENT! Matthew has audio problems throughout this episode and kind of disappears for a bit. Highlights of this episode include: it ain't no Hollow Bastion; we get randomly ditched by Donald and Goofy; Vanessa, Jim and Matthew defend the virtues of the Goofy Movie; an analysis of the later works of Clarabel Cow; Riku's Super Saiyan Suit; Banksy's See n' Say; Jim lists the Seven Princesses* of Heart in alphabetical order; Not-Being-A-Prizeitude; Sora's disturbing suicide; the oddly muscular behemoth; stay tuned through the credits for an extra special DeviantArt analysis!

*Alice is not actually a princess.

This week: Hollow Bastion!
Next week: It's the end of the world as we know it!

Vanessa, Matthew, Jim and John tackle two more worlds in this smashing episode of Square Roots. Questions resolved include: who directed A Nightmare Before Christmas? Is Tinkerbell thicc? Just who is Chris Sarandon anyway? Is flying the only element of childish joy in Matthew's heart? Why is Riku bossing around Captain Hook? What the heck is happening anyway? We may not have the right answer to any of these questions, but we try our best around Halloweentown and Neverland.

This week: It's time for Halloween Town and we soar through Neverland!
Next week: We storm the Hollow Bastion!

Do you know where you are? You’re in the jungle, baby. You’re gonna die! Is there any way to tell what age Joseph Gordon Levitt is in any particular role? Is Angels in the Outfield a good movie? Not only do we debate blue genie versus red genie on kiss softness, stealing from Winnie the Pooh, the dollar store Genie, hunting Rosie O’Donnell, the type of cat head the cave of wonders entrance actually is, Tarzan’s relative attractiveness, Jiminy Cricket’s white van, Brian Blessed’s giant mouth, and so, so much more.

We begin with Vanessa's Corrections Corner as she realizes there may have been some factual inaccuracies in the previous podcast. Also: Vanessa unleashes a sick burn, John debuts Level Up Classic to much consternation, Encyclopedia Van Zandt does sound detective work over Vanessa's knowledge of Hercules songs, we debate what Vincent from Final Fantasy VII is wearing, secrets are told and hearts are broken. Also there's some nonsense about keys shooting lasers at keyholes.

This week: We play through until you beat Cerberus at Mount Olympus.
Next week: We secure the Jungle World and Agribah!

It's a relatively smut-free episode as we take a raft through the galaxy that is Kingdom Hearts. All the hosts are amazed by John's flawless and totally not terrifying Donald Duck impression as well as David Boreanis's acting. Other questions today include: what's a gummi ship? Does John find Jimminy Cricket attractive? Why are there only six dwarves? Do we really have to do this Gummi Ship thing every time we travel between planets? Why is Cinderella a brunette? WHY IS IT CALLED A GUMMI SHIP? Why is Squall called Leon? Are there really only six dwarves on that stained glass?

Also: 1960s Producers Jim and Johnny come back! We get another Even Stevens shout out, making it the second most referenced show on Square Roots?

 

This week: We play through until you get the Gummi Ship.
Next week: We finish Wonderland and Mount Olympus!

We start off with 65 Rules For Dating My Gay Friend John, the terrible 6 Doors of Disappointment, the insane boss rush that is the final stage, discussing the physiology of Exor, casting a new hypothetical Super Mario Brothers movie, we trade Culex strategies, Matthew relies on Geno Flash to win the game, and we try to figure out who some of these late game bosses are. There's final thoughts on the game with no set rating system, and most importantly we break down the government structure and long-con of the Mushroom Kingdom. Spoiler: Mario is a useful idiot.

This week: We finish the game!

Hi Sqooters! John here! With only hours to spare I'm here to post the #Trypod special. Here's a chance for you to share the Comrade Radio podcasts with non-podcast listening buddies, and a chance for you to check out what's up with the other Comrade Radio shows.

I'll allow Malcolm to take over:

Here at the network, we're nothing if not sheep, and as such we're fiercely devoted to the latest social media trends. This month it's the "trypod" initiative, which asks podcast fans to share their favorite programs with friends who have never tried the medium. So we've carefully put together our favorite clips from our shows to craft the perfect taste test of what we do on a regular basis.

So whether you haven't tried all the network shows, or even a podcast in general, these clips are a great starting place. Don't forget, for the rest of the month, share us on social media with the hashtag #trypod, and use good old fashioned word of mouth to get people into podcasts!

At 2:00 - Apoc Radio, a post-apocalyptic survival/pop culture show!

At 8:40 - Tales From The Static - an 80s style horror anthology

At 11:38 - Surely, Not Surely - advice but with extra wine and sarcasm

At 13:56 - Divisive Issues - Comic books!

At 19:03 - Oops! I Talked Politics - Left wing political discussion

At 24:55 - Square Roots - Classic RPGs (role playing video games)

At 29:55 - Instant Classic - Modern video games!

At 31:15- Classic Schmassic - classic films from a modern perspective

As always, all our fine programming is found at Comraderadio.com

Super Mario RPG Part 3! 

In this erotically charged episode the podcast screeches to a halt as Matthew insists that Jonathan Jones is not a shark, but that doesn't stop us from further ruining your childhood. Amazing talking points include: John's misunderstanding the vagina reaches new heights; they debate the origins of the term "Axem Rangers"; everyone falls in love with a morbidly obese toucan; Vanessa is horrified by the anatomy of Valentina; everyone gets every name wrong; no one gets a Dido reference; John is the only one who can climb vines due to a childhood of sub-par platformers; and so much more!

This week: We get stars five and six!
Next week: We finish the game!

We explore several theories on the lineage of the Koopa Kids and Bowser Jr. as well as try to gain some insight into the true relationship between Mario, Princess "Peach" Toadstool, and Bowser himself. Other questions we ask: is there any Croco fan art? Is googling bad for a podcast? Is Super Mario RPG just a tabletop RPG made by Luigi to get revenge on his brother? On a scale of hot to superhot, how hot is Booster? Is the Mushroom Kingdom experiencing a defacto coup? Stay tuned through the credits for the most erotic exploration of Croco art ever put to podcast!

This week: We get stars three and four!
Next week: We get stars five and six!

Hey! Just a heads up, this is a SUPER NSFW EPISODE. Much more so than usual. So make sure your children are tucked into bed before diving into this week's particularly risqué pod.

Topics covered include: Did Dr. Eggman take Donkey Kong's name when he got him pregnant? We pitch 90s edgelord variants of the Super Mario RPG opening; there's much talk of MRPEG; we discuss Mario's living situation and hookup relationship with Princess "Peach" Toadstool; the Bowser / King Koopa Switcheroo; John drops the best joke in the history of podcasting; we ruminate on the Lumpy Space Princessness of Mallow, as well as the proper pronunciation of Mallow; and MUCH MUCH MORE. It's a jam packed, ridiculous episode of podcasting.

THIS WEEK: We play from the start of Super Mario RPG through until we get the second star.
NEXT WEEK: We hit the third and fourth stars!

Stay tuned after the credits for what will hopefully be the first and last episode of HAMILTALK! John and Vanessa are joined by Stan from They See Me Rollin' as they divulge Star Wars origin stories and then tackle the burning questions our listeners have been aching to ask: can you teach a cat to use the force? Why is your marriage not working? Where is the love? Also: John's deep Wing Commander knowledge, lightsaber nunchucks and so much more!

Also! We interview game industry professional Brent Tighe about his feelings on the dark and light side mechanics of KOTOR!
