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.

Square Roots - Episode 355
Johnny gets weird quasi-dates with straight guys flashbacks in this party filled, aquarium smashing, minigame loving chunker of BioWare's Mass Effect 3! Mass Effect lets its hair down and gets out of its ridiculous marching band outfit and finally lets you enjoy the world they've created, at least for this one DLC. There's evil betrayals! Clones! Gun toting Hanar! Grunt in the shower! And so much more!
Also:

- The Princess of Burnsville
- Vanessa's Milky White Obsession
- The Whore / Horror Switcheroo
- Shepherd Almost Died And It Was The Funniest Thing That Ever Happened
- The Asari Don't Make Sense
- The Normanddy of Thessius
- Definitely Not Gay James Vega
- Blasto: A Porn Parody


This Week: The Citadel DLC!
Next Week: We finish Mass Effect 3!

Square Roots - Episode 354
Sadly we don't get to dispatch Kai Leng in this episode, but we do get to meet some big ol' space bugs in this chunker of BioWare's Mass Effect 3! We get a lot of DLC lore about the origin of the Reapers, get to splish splash in some water, and Miranda gets to wrap up her Cerberus ties and crappy father issues in one biotic swoop. Also an exciting edition of Jim's Front Page Failure!
Also:

- Johnny Can't Tell if Jim Is Saying Horror Or Whore But Is Afraid To Ask
- A Very Real George Miller Game
- Jackson Cloink-Cloink
- That Was Some Good Breevin'
- Vectorman for the Sega Genesis
- Vanessa's Chef Wrestler Persona

This Week: Leviathan, Horizon: Zero Ashleys (because she's probably dead)
Next Week: The Citadel DLC!
