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.

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.

This week: We thrash through the Deep Jungle and Agrabah!
Next week: We swim through the vore world of Monstro and on to Atlantica!

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!

Kingdom Hearts - Part 1

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!

Super Mario RPG Part 4!

http://coachsassistant.gtmsportswear.com/squareroots

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!
Next week: We get to the Gummi Ship in Kingdom Hearts 1!
