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 365
It's a new game! Or maybe an old game. But it's new to some of us, and that's the important part. Except that we've all played Final Fantasy 7. But is this a remake? It's complicated. On this life blood of the planet sucking episode we do the first reactor bombing run, get derailed and run into someone who shouldn't be there, and find some cats.

- A Time Usage Breakdown of 60 Minute Man
- Johnny's Overrated Game (JOG)
- The Smell of Mako
- Catherine Zehta / Zayta / Zeeta Jones

Square Roots - Episode 364
We finally finish Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear and everyone gets smooches! Except Jim. We all meet our ideal matches that we'd descend to the first level of fantasy hell with, and then do just that! But none of us expect the... extended finale and one heck of a cliffhanger!

- Either Vaguely Threatening Or A Wet Blanket
- Shakira & DJ Khaled
- Matthew Just Likes The Attention
- Zelda's So Hot Right Now

This Week: We finish Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear!

Square Roots - Episode 362
Dive into this sickly sweet bowl of soup, which is definitely not just BBQ sauce. Today's flavours are the first chunk of the rather chunky and expansive Siege of Dragonspear DLC for BioWare's Baldur's Gate - we had to reduce what we covered due to this game just being real big. It turns out Siege of Dragonspear is actually pretty new? And pretty good?
Also:

- Your Dad's Impressions
- Vanessa's Ratatouille Moment
- There's Some Whores in this Castle
- Jack Black's Mars Attacks!
- Dorn Fans

This Week: We meet Caelar!
Next Week:  We cross the bridge fort bridge of the Siege of Dragonspear!? I dunno.
