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.

THE Classic RPG Podcast, w/Jim Banks, John Brandon, Matthew Van Zandt & Vanessa

Jan 30, 2017

It's all hands on deck for the invasion of Tattooine! Matthew takes offense at spurious uses of the term "dragon"! Sand jokes are made! Homicidal robots are found! We kill dozens of sand people! Marlena gets her revenge on her terrible husband! John isn't super great at being good and Jim is kind of terrible at being evil! The very foundations of Square Roots threaten to break apart as the Sqooters spar over John's overuse of sound cues!


This week on Square Roots: We trek through the sandy sand of Tatooine!


Next week on Square Roots: We say hi to the wookies of Kashyyk!

Matthew finds his KOTOR groove as Jim and he pit the Space Montagues against the Space Capulets in this star crossed episode of Knights of the Old Republic. Also: mouths are smashed; Shantae can stay; we meet a non-Batman based Catwoman; everyone hates the crappy Jedi council; we solve a mystery, Phoenix Wright style; and we explore just how much more fun the Dark Side is in this game.


This week on Square Roots: We plow through the Jedi trials of Dantooine!


Next week on Square Roots: We trek through the sandy sand of Tatooine!

Vanessa goes turret crazy this week as Jim tackles his problems sticking to the Dark Side, John is relentlessly teased for his terrible headphones, and we play through another big ol' chunkerino of Knights of the Old Republic. This week: Villains buy food and medicine! Light Side Jedis kill everyone! We debate ways to kill a rankor beast! We totally forgot about a droid! We ponder the issues inherent in BioWare sidequest design! Jim has many limes! For scurvy! And so much more.


This week on Square Roots: We play from the Undercity through until the escape from Taris.


Next week on Square Roots: We complete the trials of Dantooine!

OH MAN! A new game! A new year! And it's Star Wars! We start off with a quick review of Rogue One in which Matthew tries to fight everyone, then Matthew comes out as a Young Galaxy-er, and rejects the premise that KOTOR was set 3956 years before A New Hope; Nessa’s touching Fisher Stevens tribute; Nessa’s standards for a dream man include that he has a jacket; Jim debates the morality of buying a drunk a drink versus killing them; John refuses to discuss his mother’s vast extended universe library; Larry the Cable Bi voicing the hick janitor; Matt Stone as Calo Nord, the Space Mom who gives Rodians a time out; no one knows who Imoen is; many Beck jokes are told; Jim says some shameful things; finally, Matthew tries to spell out exactly who Malak and Revan are, because it's darn confusing.


This week on Square Roots: We play from the start on the Endar Spire until you reach the village in the Undercity.


Next week on Square Roots: We finish off Taris and blast off to Dantooine!

No theme music this week as we haven't got permission from any artists yet. We'll get back with something fun from the Star Wars community ASAP before the next episode!

 

Jan 3, 2017

New friends of the podcast just happened to drop by and talk with us about the finer points of Final Fantasy X! We've got the translator Nick Des Barres, Nerds Without Pants's Julian Titus, and former xSeed editor Jess Chavez here to talk overdrives, Lulu's belts, literal verses interpretive translation, comparing and contrasting the Trails in the Sky heroes versus the Final Fantasy cast, FF9 Versus FFX status ailments, and even more incredible nitty-gritty that we love to delve into.

But! Don't worry! We'll be back next Monday morning with the first episode of KOTOR! Don't forget to play until you hit the village in the Undercity!
