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

Nov 30, 2020

Is the world too mean to Molyneux? Did he enjoy that picture of himself as a snake oil salesman in the game? What happened to all of Johnny's husbands? Did The Great British Bake-Off steal Fable II's music? Is Reaver bisexual? We answer all of these questions and more in this finale to our playthrough of Lionhead Studio's Fable II!


This Week: We finish the game!
Next Week: Uhhhhhh. We don't know. Tune in Tuesday for the results of our poll!

When Johnny's away, the podcast does talk about politics! On this week's episode Matthew, Jim and Vanessa tackle Libeartarianism, Jim googles stuff, and Vanessa decides to unwisely crush on Reaver! Also: the interesting choices of the Spire, the gentrification of Westcliff, and so much more!


This Week: We reach the assault on Bloodstone!

Okay, I'm just going to say it: this week we mercilessly bully Matthew. It's true. Jim, Vanessa and Johnny focus on Matthew's pronunciation instead of on Lionhead Studio's classic action RPG Fable II. Also he isn't riding the wave of next-gen consoles. Otherwise, we help or hinder farmers, get married, get "divorced", and settle into the fleshy meat of this enjoyable game.

This Week: We reach The Spire!

By harnessing the power of the Xbox 360, we move into Lionhead Studios' wacky, Discworld-esque Fable II. Topics touched on today: Blast Corps memories, travelling back to the Willenium, more Molyneux talk, the fine details of fridging, Fable 1 Nermal Edition, and Vanessa gambles on changing the podcast to cover FPSes. Will Sierra Roots ever return? FIND OUT!


This Week: We start The Ritual quest, your first Hero mission in Fable II.
Next Week: We reach The Spire!

Oh boy. We finished Squaresoft's 2000 epic, Chrono Cross. And it didn't quite go the way we imagined. There's a lot to cover on this episode, including the WAT, PolisPolice, Clive, Jill and Joshua of Valisthea, Johnny's daydream, Jim trying to explain the plot in one breath and...daughter clones?!
