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

Jun 26, 2023

Square Roots - Episode 370
Johnny's back and has two weeks pent up of his usual Scary Movie / Family Guy style reference humour. The other hosts grudgingly tolerate it. But it's a great chunk of the game, cut a little short because it turned out to be super long. We've got the sneaky climb up Shinra tower, office politics, a bored mayor, our first chunk of Jenova, a pointless dungeon, and so much lore to figure out.
Also:

- The Most Boring Opening Tangent Ever, According to Jim
- Johnny Flubs His Game
- The Password is Force Field
- Why Did You Do It, Alan Rickman?
- The Mechanics of Cait Sith
- Air Holes
- Perfecting the Lord British Texan Accent
- Butter Talk
- And so much more!

This Week: We defeat Rufus!
Next Week:  We finish the main game AND the Intermission!

Square Roots - Episode 368
We get an exclusive VIP pass to the Honeybee Inn, but where we really want to go to is Haunted House. We hear they even have a trap door!
