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

May 27, 2019

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!

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.

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!
