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 31, 2021

The gang has mixed feelings over the ending of Kingdom Hearts 2 and are left with a lot of questions, like:

- Did any of this make sense?
- Why did Johnny yell at Matthew?
- Does what happened to Riku make more sense than the Marvel movies?
- Should you be pressing the Y / triangle button more? Or the X / Square? Or not?
- How do you pronounce Saix?
- And of course, the long requested: would you eat this summon?


This Week: We finish Kingdom Hearts 2, Thank God
Next Week: Kaim goes to jail after defeating a big ol' wormy boy in Lost Odyssey

Coming hot off the heels of one of our Scare Roots Livestreams, Vanessa and Jim sit down with the star of Phantasmagoria 2 - Paul Morgan Stetler! We discuss his new YouTube project Conversations with Curtis centered around the game, why the game may be finding a new life with today's gamers and get some insider details into what it was like to bring the game to life.

Check out Conversations with Curtis at https://www.youtube.com/c/conversationswithcurtis

The whole Square Roots is out of sorts this week as they are obsessed with chilli dogs, and not really that interested in Sora revisiting the Disney worlds again. But that doesn't mean there's not a lot to talk about, like:

- "I Love That You Love It"
- Evil Uncle Scratch
- Fitness Deez Lutz
- She Wants That Knot
- Not Gas-X
- Auron Action Figure


This Week: Land of Dragons 2, Beast's Castle 2, Olympus 2
Next Week: Agrabah 2, Port Royal 2, Halloweentown 2, Pride Lands 2
