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

Mar 30, 2020

This episode is just chock full of bonkers moments from a very, very bonkers JRPG. Questions include: was Genesis Rhapsodos a member of Organization XII? Was Palmer Final Destination'd? Can a plane be a boat? What's an upstairs and downstairs treasure, really? Why does Aeris hide behind trees so badly? AND SO MANY MORE.

This Week: We complete the Temple of the Ancients!
Next Week: We finish our first visit to THE CRATER.

This week on a big, large, huge episode of Square Roots we ask: what happened to our first recording of this episode? Who doesn't love the pep? Why don't we all go to the Gun Arm Emporium? Who is better than Bette Midler? Will you smash like and subscribe on a lifestream livestream? Which Paul Verhoeven movie is the best? What even is Cait Sith?

This Week: We find the secret of Cosmo Canyon!
Next Week: We complete the Temple of the Ancients!

Matthew is on assignment for this chunker as we dig down into mid section of Disc 1. How long is this disc anyhow? Features of this chunker include: stealing from baby birds, a bit of Barret's back story, a chocobo dance number, Jim's Summon Review Corner, and possibly the worst minigame of all time.

This Week: We reach North Coral and prep to get on the Gold Saucer tram!
Next Week: We find the secret of Cosmo Canyon!

Final Fantasy VII Part 3 - That's Mrs. Eyeball Nipple

Another great debate: Does Jenova has an eyeball or nipple? On this week's episode: we do a terrible climing section, a million puzzle rooms, climb some stairs, DRIVE A MOTORCYCLE UP AND DOWN SOME STAIRS, meet the wonderful Mr. Palmer, Vanessa develops feelings for Reeve, meet a puppycat, and Johnny gets heckled. Also: Sephiroth's Martha moment.

This Week: We escape Midgar and head to Kalm!
Next Week: We reach North Coral and prep to get on the Gold Saucer tram.
