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

Jun 26, 2017

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.

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.

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

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!

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