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.

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 7

We push to the finish of Kingdom Hearts in record time, reflecting on the journey as we destroy the... six?... forms of Ansem. Other topics enjoyed today: Race Jenkins PI; Finding Kurt Zisa; Come Guardian / Eldritch Backpack / Come Kazooie / Banjo Cthulu; this is the new flesh: a floating turducken of biomechanical anime tropes; Pluto just being really into pup play; KINGDOM HEARTS IS LIGHT; RPG / pop culture mashups; and so much more!

This week: We finish Kingdom Heats!
Next week: We play through the end of the first full moon operation of Persona 3!

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!

What is vore? John explains. This is relevant: today we get swallowed by Monstro before heading off to the Little Mermaid world of Atlantica, where Ursula also tries to swallow you! Also: being eaten alive by snakes, BRIAN BLESSED RETURNS, we imagine Dreamworks Hearts, puppet fetishes, we debate Ariel's family tree and the Little Mermaid expanded universe, hair nomenclature, and so much more!

This week: We go down where it's wetter in Monstro and Atlantica!
Next week: We hit up Halloween Town and then move on to... Neverland!
