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

Feb 24, 2020

TWO HUNDRED EPISODES! How do we celebrate? By getting all nostalgic for the blocky lil' LEGO friends of Final Fantasy VII! In this chunker: President Shinra negs Cloud, we ride a pinball machine, Tifa has many outfits, Johnny tries to decipher all of Cloud's bizarre flashes and flashbacks, and body pillow requests!

This Week: We blow up the Sector 5 reactor and get to the Wall Market in Final Fantasy VII!
Next Week: We escape the destruction of Sector 7!

What happens if you leave Vanessa and Johnny alone to wrap up a game? Over two and a half hours of a two-fister, that's what happens. We can't be trusted to keep on track, so not only do we work through the last eight or so hours of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords but somehow also get into Vanessa's vague recollections of Yaddle's expanded unvierse backstory, we spend way too long googling Ed Asner's resume, talk about the merits and drawbacks of the idealism of The West Wing, and we find out that Vanessa can't do a Wookie impression at all.

This Week: "We" finish KOTOR 2!
Next Week: We blow up the Sector 5 reactor and get to the Wall Market in Final Fantasy VII!

NEXT GAME ANNOUNCED! It's a Johnny and Vanessa two-fister in this odd chunker of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. First of all, we research Alanis's financial situation, Johnny plots out his own edit of How I Met Your Mother while forgetting the name of Jason (?) Segal (?), and then we get into the Super Secret Cave of Secrets (AKA a Luke Cave), go on a guided tour of the Sith Ruins, answer some SAT questions and restore a hereditary monarchy. Now go get that definitely not evil Kreia a burrito.

This Week: We finish Korriban and return to Onderon!
Next Week: We finish KOTOR 2!

It's an Election Year on Onderon in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic! We've got some disturbingly familiar candidates, as well as Mandalorians to team up with, a mystery to not solve, a sexy pleasure yacht to board, and so much more!

This Week: We complete the Yacht and leave Onderon with Mandalore!
Next Week: We finish Korriban and return to Onderon!
