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 4

So much political dramatics. Will Vayne kill Larsa? Will Larsa kill Vayne? Who are all these Senators? Do these judges want to kill Vayne or Larsa? What happens if you leave deifacted nethecite in the oven just a little too long? FIND OUT. Also: Vanessa does stand up, wedding ring re-use is discussed, we dive into physiological gender divergence among the Viera, Vanessa makes a sex joke, we debate if the show has veered into A Game of Thrones or Fight Club territory, spatchcocking, the morality of Wood banishment, and so much more!

This week: We finish exploring the Henne Mines and ice an elder dragon.
Next week: We vanquish the Miram Stillshrine!

Final Fantasy XII Part 3

We descend into the spooky depths of the Tomb of Raithwall to help prove that Ashe is really a princess in this sand-filled, Star Warsy episode of Square Roots. So many questions that we may or may not answer in this episode. Does Vaan also hate sand? Does Larsa have a crush on Penelo? Is Fran the Chewbacca? Are there any zones in this game that aren't vaguely desert-y? Why are elementals such jerks? Why does this group just keep getting arrested? Has Matthew finally accepted this game's pronunciation of Marquis? Will Vanessa find out what a daddybear really is?

This week: We plunge into the tomb of Raithwall!
Next week: We finish exploring the Henne Mines!

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.
