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.

Are they twists, or reveals? Is there a difference? Either way at least half the cast of Breath of Fire III has something to reveal in this astounding final episode of Breath of Fire III. Also: Vanessa takes Myria's educational tour ride, we let the faerie village sort itself out, Ryu gets a blast from the past, and Peco gets smart, somehow.

Matthew just can't stop his faeries from eating each other in this desert-spanning episode! Breath of Fire somehow manages to go full Sierra game AND begin the space elevator up to Disc 3 Crazy! Vanessa can't find robots, Matthew refuses to believe Johnny about an easily provable fact, and Johnny pitches a great premise for a Ted Talk app.

Also! We answer your questions!

Are Jedis just a bunch of Chads? Should you guilt your party members into kissing a horny old man? Just how deadly are eggs? Just what was Johnny talking about that Matthew beeped out?
All these questions and more will be answered soon!

Breath of Fire III what is? This episode might not answer that, but it does have a variety of minigames to make your life so very very good. These include:

- pulling a bucket out of a well
- driving a boat into a bigger boat
- pulling a monster out of the sea

AND SO MANY MORE.

Also: Lisa Loeb rare b-sides, beefy boys, Spandex Einstein: Kukuys, the legend of the seven seas.

This Week: We make it across the sea after about eighty minigames in possibly the most minigame filled episode ever.
Next Week: We make it to the desert of death!

Breath of Fire decides to take a long stroll through memory lane as a now grown-up Ryu revisits his childhood haunts. Fortunately Johnny has caught up, Vanessa finds something in common with Peco, there's a game-breakingly good dragon form, and no one can figure out this faerie village minigame. Oh! Also now the quest is to go talk to God, which is a whole thing.


This Week: We grab yet another passport from Nina's dad!
Next Week: We make it across the sea after about eighty minigames in possibly the most minigame filled episode ever.

Come join us for an animatronic, physical VFX filled spook 'em up, Child's Play! You know, the one with Chucky! The first one! Before he got married and had a family.

Jim and Johnny are joined by Gena Radcliffe and Patrick Hamilton from the Kill By Kill podcast as they explore the film that scared poor kid Johnny to the point of refusing to watch.

We take on a too-big chunker in a disasterous episode of Square Roots. For the first time in the history of the show, Matt is the only one who completed it. Also this episode: Johnny's problematic alter-ego, debating the origins of woods pornography, things get real Cho Aniki, there's muscle chest cleavage, and the game decides to provide optional Australian dialogue.


This Week: We finally fight the resident at the top of Angel Tower!
Next Week: We grab yet another passport from Nina's dad!

Jul 29, 2019

CW: Child loss, first 30 seconds.
From Tugglepuffs to unicorn brothers, this episode goes places other podcasts wouldn't. That's right: we talk about sneaky redistribution of wealth, consider the consent issues around Yakkidy Saxxing, find Momo's dad's erotic literature collection, a real thing that's really in the game, as well as slowly figure out how the Master system works. Sadly, Johnny misses out on his chance to romance Bunyan, but does get to meet Garr.


This Week: We escape Momo's Tower in a dramatic manner.
Next Week: We finally fight the resident at the top of Angel Tower!

Jul 22, 2019

CW: Child loss, 01h06min-01h12min


So many questions this episode. Are we going to get sick of protagonists Gary and Mogu? Can you get chrysm out of fur? Is there anything sadder than the story of the Nue? Is Bunyan Johnny's new husband? Can we put the ghost of Julian to rest? Should we dwell on Teepo's gender? What is Matthew smoking?


This Week: We start Breath of Fire III and play until killing the boss of Mount Glaus.
Next Week: We escape Momo's Tower in a dramatic manner.

Johnny starts writing his epitaph after a near-disaster at the Olive Garden in this week's chilling Fallout Finale. What really happened to Vanessa's dog? Is Johnny a psychopath? Did Matthew actually finish the game? Where is Jim? Finally, we get a Parasite Eve / Kingdom Hearts crossover that everyone will enjoy. 

This Week: We finish Fallout!
Next Week: We start Breath of Fire III and play until killing the boss of Mount Glaus.

Jim, Johnny and Vanessa are drawn into a world of 1970s word games that don't quite work, municipal conflicts best resolved by staying out of it, accidental genocide, crash courses in water pump repair, and trying to save scum their way through some rough Deathclaw encounters!


This Week: We head to Necropolis and The Boneyard!

Welcome to Square Roots's new spin-off podcast: Scare Roots! That's right, evil friends, we are looking at all things horrifying, disqueting, and sinister in gaming.

Johnny and Vanessa head deep into the desert wasteland, two-handedly solving all the townsfolk's problems in Junktown and The Hub. Larry David's crime spree? Solved. Attacks on the caravans? Solved. Casino staff being alive? Solved. Johnny's Vault Dweller Joshton and Vanessa's Vanessa Eym may not be the best or most ethical adventurers, but they get stuff done. Mostly.

This Week: We play through Junktown and the Hub and do a questathon!
Next Week: We head to Necropolis and The Boneyard!

Yeah! It's time to crawl out of our Vaults and go explore the desert wasteland. On this episode: we deal with 90s UI, talk about hot hot E3 news, have even more problems with 90s UI, try to find brown things on brown floors in brown houses, ignore major plot developments and are otherwise very confused.

Finally, Matthew easily plows through Zelda, while John struggles through the finish. With Jim recovering from surgery and Vanessa returning to her home planet it's one more two hander! Topics today include: the death of witch ladies, Nabooru's tragic backstory, Zelda's crystal prison as a metaphor for late capitalism, Persona Q, Fallout excitement, and more! We also get real confused about Zelda timelines.

This Week: We play Ocarina of Time to completion!
Next Week: We reach Junktown in Fallout 1!

Things get awkward after Vanessa flies back to her home planet and Jim recovers from surgery: that's right, after the level up this is a TWO-HANDER. John continues his angry rage against Nintendo and Ocarina of Time, Matthew lords his skill at Zelda over him, and they fairly easily complete The Hardest Zelda Dungeon Ever. Also: Vanessa has another Theatre Minute! Was the Zelda experiment a failure? Will it destroy the podcast?

NO! THE NEXT GAME IS ANNOUNCED AND WE ARE ALL EXCITED!

This Week: We complete the Shadow Temple!
Next Week: We finish Ocarina of Time!

HEYYYYYY OCARINA. Vanessa gets a theme song, John throws his expensive electronic equipment in a fit of rage, there's tons of minigames, Matthew figures out how to skip entire dungeon sections, and there's many hot takes about this game, it's controls, and for some reason the works of Kevin Smith.


This Week: We clear the Fire Temple!
Next Week: We somehow complete the Water Temple!

Be prepared to throw your 3DS across the room, because Vanessa, Jim, Matthew and John are back and haven't quite mastered the ancient art of z-targeting. At all. Even while using their wrists. So pull on your stilletos, because on this episode: we meet the Great Fairy; we find a town full of strapping, stereotypical fail sons; head through the Dodge Durango dungeon; John falls in love with the Gorons; we discover Link's boundary issues; we have several cutscenes of large men behaving very, very strangely; the most jam-packed John's Bullshit Minigame Corners ever; and heck somehow even Avengers: Endgame talk sneaks in. Also a new fact about Vanessa is revealed! SHE IS NOT A NOTARY PUBLIC.


This Week: We find the crystal inside Jabu-Jabu!
Next Week: We clear the Fire Temple!

Hey! Our level up went incredibly long, and was mostly spoilers, so here it is in its own little package.

00:00 - Thrill as we break down The Avengers: Endgame and answer questions that you probably know the answers to!

 

34:00 - Ready for some Crazy Ex Girlfriend talk? We discuss the good and bad of the ending, Greg, and the results of Rebecca's romantic pursuits!

May 13, 2019

We talk about a spoilerzone at the end of the episode, but it turned out to be so beefy we've moved it to a separate episode! Check your feed!

It's a new game! We get to Ocarina some Time! We get acquainted with some glowing ladies, a forest boy without a fairy who never talks, get into some deep vore with a tree, explore Jim's arachnophobia, Matthew explains how motion controls work to Jim (move your wrists), John gets gay married to a shopkeeper, and so much more!

This Week: We finish the Lost Woods in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!
Next Week: We get inside Jabu-Jabu and assumably are excreated out of it.

Thanks to The Consouls for their awesome jazz cover of Zelda's Lullaby!

With these fateful words, Earthbound comes to a close. We tear through Ness's subconscious, lose Jim, deal with the shock and horror of instakill attacks, and finally learn to use thoughts and prayers to solve a problem. Also: so much body horror.


This Week: We finish Earthbound!
Next Week: We finish the Lost Woods in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!
