Square Roots is like a book club, but for classic RPGs! Each episode John, Matthew, Jim and Vanessa play through a chunkerino 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.

Podcast cover

CW: Mental illness, sexual assault

Finally, Vanessa's greatest wish comes true and we start the sexy vampire chronicles of Troika's RPG classic: Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines: The Undying: Reckoning: Turn to the Dark: Revengeance. Join Eponia Shade, Chad Cemetary, Claudius Scares and Mathiu Vamp Zandt as they learn all about the rules of Vampire Prom, find out that there are plenty of stakes in this scenario, and disarm a violent offender. Also Matt skips a vital tutorial and Jim isn't totally sure he's playing the right game. This Week: We head out of Santa Monica after exploderizing a factory! Next Week: We spend a night at a museum and head to Hollywood!

Rank #2: Chrono Trigger Part 1 - Party Like It's 999

Podcast cover
Read more

Chrono Trigger Part 1

We start our new time-hopping adventure in a talk that gets very, very mired in discussing what would and wouldn't be ethical to do with your inert clone. Other questions raised: Is this a total palette swap of a game? What floor does Lucca live on anyhow? What is the technology level of 1000 AD Crono Trigger? Should we advertise for companies on spec? Is Secret of Mana the distant future of Chrono Trigger? Can we tell the difference between KISS and Insane Clown Posse albums? It's perfectly natural to cuddle your clone, right? Should some yums be yucked? 

Find out these answers and so many more in the latest episode of Square Roots!

This week: We begin Chrono Trigger, and play until the bridge boss after the trial! Next week: We play until the end of Tata and the Frog and before leaving for the prehistoric world.

Our first Final Fantasy X episode! Matthew, John, Jim and professional whaler Vanessa dive into the crystal clear waters of Spira. We start with memories of our first experiences with the Final Fantasy X and move on to the Quest Log to discuss the physiognomy of skeleton fish, Tidus’s imaginary pen, creepy ghost kids, Phantasy Star girls, the special properties of Spira’s water, convenient sin foggies, Tidus’s dad hatred, Wakka’s fundamentalist streak, Yuna does some dancing for a pterodactyl with boobs, Tidus does some Zidane style perving, we try to figure out what exactly Sin looks like, and debate the merits of Japanese death metal. And hey, the Bullshit Minigame Corner is BACK!

The Bard's Tale - Part 1

Yes, that's not a typo. We're covering the, uh, classic? RPG The Bard's Tale, and by that we mean the 2004 release that first came out on PS2 and Xbox. You might have a few questions, like: why are we playing The Bard's Tale? Was it written by Adam Carolla? Will we ever see Spiderman: Too Many Spidermen? Why has Matt never seen Big Bird's legs? Is Infamous an RPG? Does the town slut shame a widow? What the heck is a Kunal Trow? Just how dark can Vanessa make this podcast?

Parasite Eve - Part 1

Parasite Eve: survival horror JRPG? Or is it a visual novel? This is the first of many, many questions we have during the first chunk of this bizarre game. Others include: What the heck are the rules surrounding Eve's power? Should we be calling her Melissa? Has Vanessa won Best Character Name of All Time? Why won't Jim plug his podcast at his church? Did Daniel really shoot a kid? What's up with Klamp anyhow? Is polygony illegal in the United States? Are we right in not thinking good things are gonna happen with Ben and the dog? What the heck is a mitochondria anyhow?

Chrono Trigger Part 2

After a very, very long Blade Runner talk and Jim gets the future year wrong, we settle in for our usual expert panel on all your burning Chrono Trigger questions, such as; why does Matthew constantly misquote Judge Dredd? Did they get wet after being squirted out from Heckran's Cave? Is Vanessa using jet bike racing as some kind of euphemism? Why is Matthew heck-bent on getting Vanessa an eight ball? What even IS an eight ball? Are those white fluffy things big cats or big chickens?

Find out these answers and so many more in the latest episode of Square Roots!

So. Much. World. Building. From a minigame involving blowing away insults from your father so you can learn a special trick to our first full game of Blitzball it seems like Final Fantasy X is concentrating on everything but the usual JRPG fare. Other topics include: evil ski teams, Dona’s outfit, heresy, Jecht’s salary and reality show, Suzanne Vega, religious sports sponsorship, Blitzball team names, the ramifications of the early whale reveal, and of course the madness and joy of this game’s famous minigame. Also there’s the most insane Bullshit Minigame Corner ever!

This week: we play from the start of the game until we reunite with an old friend after the Blitzball game.

Next week: From the Mi'ihen Highroad through until the end of Djose!

So many questions this episode. Are we going to get sick of protagonists Gary and Mogu? Can you get chrysm out of fur? Is there anything sadder than the story of the Nue?

It's the first real episode of Square Roots, the Classic RPG podcast! We begin with the recently re-released (on iOS and Android anyhow) Final Fantasy IX! So many questions are raised in this episode: does Zidane have the Jonathan Taylor Thomas haircut or the Rachel? What is Cinna wearing? Does Blank have pants? Is Vivi a sad little garbage orphan child? We would explain how Triple Triad works, but honestly we don't know.

We bravely push through a whole ton of plot stuff as we establish Vivi, Steiner, Zidane, Garnet and Quina as well as a whole host of side characters. If you're playing along at home we will play until you reach The Evil Forest, and next episode will be until the end of The Ice Cavern.

Also: cat rescue, jumping rope, Steiner is Jim's favorite character, imagining what Queen Brahne would sound like,

Things get much, much darker as there is much child murder in this episode and possibly in this chunk of Final Fantasy X. The chambers of the Fayth get real bad this episode, but the bosses get better. There are many, many flashbacks. We also explore the steamy sinful relationship between Jecht, Auron and Braska, we ponder the lack of clothing on Yunalesca, and Vanessa gets some audio issues and kind of sounds like a robot. But is this robot programmed for good or evil? This week on Square Roots: We play through Zanarkand through the encounter with Yunalesca until we're back on the airship.

Next week on Square Roots: We go hang out with Maester Mika and do all sorts of fun sidequest shenanigans!

It's all Sondheim all the Sond-time on this episode of Square Roots!

OH. We also finish Final Fantasy VI! TAKE THAT KEFKA, YOU THIRD RATE FINAL FANTASY VILLAIN. While we may be down on mimes, clowns, and clown-mimes we are definitely all for what might be the single best final boss battle of any Final Fantasy game. Add to that questions about the ancient queen's love of Odin (was the horse part of it?) and the introduction and thorough dissection of Gogo, you have an amazing end to a fantastic game.

Hey! Just a heads up, this is a SUPER NSFW EPISODE. Much more so than usual. So make sure your children are tucked into bed before diving into this week's particularly risqué pod.

Topics covered include: Did Dr. Eggman take Donkey Kong's name when he got him pregnant? We pitch 90s edgelord variants of the Super Mario RPG opening; there's much talk of MRPEG; we discuss Mario's living situation and hookup relationship with Princess "Peach" Toadstool; the Bowser / King Koopa Switcheroo; John drops the best joke in the history of podcasting; we ruminate on the Lumpy Space Princessness of Mallow, as well as the proper pronunciation of Mallow; and MUCH MUCH MORE. It's a jam packed, ridiculous episode of podcasting.

THIS WEEK: We play from the start of Super Mario RPG through until we get the second star. NEXT WEEK: We hit the third and fourth stars!
