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 25, 2020

In this sprawling episode of Square Roots, we have many revelations: She-Ra wasn't made to make Matt attractive, and he's angry about it! Also Seymour did everything because he thought it would be Good and Better, Yuna and friends have to make a fight, we play Pokémon Hot & Cold, and we establish Vampire Parent BEMDAS (or BEDMAS).

This Week: We finish Chapter 2!
Next Week: We do the side-quests of Chapter 3!

There's a whole lot of side content, but we're real focused on the sacred Ronso site, Mount Gagazet. which Yuna and friends definitely would not defile. Also this week: we pick a side, Yuna puts on a less great concert, get interviewed on Shelinda TV, Vanessa becomes the only host, and so much more.

This Week: We do the side content of Chapter 2!
Next Week: We finish Chapter 2!

Alright! We did it! We complete Chapter 1, and do a bunch of the side missions too. On this episode: we have a long discussion helping to normalize the moonflow and Marysville bathrooms, enjoy the odd coupling of characters, and then argue over the correct pronunciation of tourist for about five minutes. Oh yeah, we also gave away balloons and found some monkeys!

This Week: We finish Chapter 1!
Next Week: We finish the side missions in Chapter 2!

Okay, okay, so we played about 45 minutes of Final Fantasy X-2. And then talked about it for an hour and a half. In our defense 1: it's bonkers 2: they don't clearly establish how the planning and promotion of this concert was handled 3: we also watched the Eternal Calm interequel which was like eight minutes long.

This Week: We finish... the Prologue... in Final Fantasy X-2!
Next Week: We finish Chapter 1!
