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.

In this dragon-fighting episode of Square Roots, we finish Disc 1 of Squaresoft's Chrono Cross. Also: Jim describes a movie that cannot possibly exist, we try to guess who is in a werewolf movie, we see a dripping wet Time Twink, and Vanessa reminds you not to put too many worms before your cart, because they'll get squished. This Week: We finish D…
 
Tonight we are down several folks because of various reasons. Grace and Tam are both travelling and Ammo was off celebrating her birthday. As a result we go forward with one of the smaller casts we have had in awhile. Tonight we talk a bit about Genshin Impact and the recent Resin adjustments that have been announced.

On this reality-warping episode of Square Roots, things get... complicated in Square's Chrono Cross. First of all: we're deep in Disc 3 crazy and it's just disc 1. Also: cookin' up enemies, how this game is just like Sleepaway Camp, and trying to determine what the Chrono Trigger of Chrono Trigger is. This Week: We reach the second dragon! Next Wee…
 
Sometimes a show happens without us really realizing it. That was absolutely the case for this evening's show because we had what felt like a very limited number of topics that filled up the full hour. We start off the show with some further discussion of Genshin Impact. Last week we thought we had been pushed up against a wall, but it turns out th…
 
Finally, we catch up with Masamune, everyone's favorite zany fellas, except now they're a sword and it's depressing. Also discussed: Nikki is a quarter fish, Scandinavian UwU, the ramifications of Vegas, and how Lynx has broken every human law. This Week: We fight Garai on the Isle of the Damned! Next Week: We reach the second dragon! Our Patreon: …
 
Earlier this afternoon a large chunk of the AggroChat crew spent a few hours playing Among Us, a two year old game that is now suddenly the most popular thing on the planet. So of course we lead off the show talking a bit about that experience and how we are making tentative plans to do this as a regular thing. Maybe at some point we should even of…
 
We're back in the original timeline in Chrono Cross, but that doesn't stop things from getting real trippy and weird. We meet a frog dragon, there's a terrifying fairy genocide, recruit an oWo, and plunge into Fort Dragonia. Also: Jim debates Matthew on rip-off versus homage, we fill out our JRPG bingo cards, and we maybe even start enjoying this g…
 
Tonight we have an extra long show, because we tried to limit it down to three topics… but still had too much to say to fit within the normal allotted hour. This week we also have bonus friend Nephsys as we talk about Genshin Impact and how it came seemingly out of nowhere and conquered many of our lives. From there we talk about Star Wars Squadron…
 
This is a brand new Final Fantasy Chat Discussion series, separate from our Phoenix Edge RPG Podcast, in which Hat discusses the latest Final Fantasy news with a panel of guests. On the very first episode, Stan joins the discussion, as well as one of my favorite YouTubers, Alleyway Jack, to converse about the new direction of Final Fantasy! Check O…
 
In this episode, we get all exploded by time. Especially Jim. So much Jim. Have you ever heard Jim mad? You will today. Because Jim found out what happened to the Epoch. This Week: We either get to the beach in the Original timeline, or recruit Glenn in the alternate timeline. Next Week: We clear out Fort Dragonia! Our Patreon: http://patreon.com/s…
 
Tonight we have a show that basically is Bel carpet bombing the trello with current events topics. First up we talk about the acquisition of Zenimax by Microsoft and our thoughts about that. From there we discuss the wildly tinfoil hat theory that Microsoft is going to acquire Sega next. We also talk about how poorly the Xbox One performed in Japan…
 
We start everyone's favorite sequel to Chrono Trigger: Chrono Cross! Finally we catch up with our favourite pals, Chrono, Lucca, Frog, Robo, and see what they're doing, right? Right? After a while? We assume this is some kind of Final Fantasy XII start with temporary characters before switching to your favorites. Also: Johnny ruminates on a Bolero …
 
Ring Fit Adventure released just shy of a year ago at this point, and it is only now finally reliably available in stores. As a result of several of us finally getting our hands on it we talk a little bit about the experience of using it. From there we talk about the PS5 Price Reveal and pre-order debacle. This moves into discussing the RTX 3080 la…
 
VANESSA DOESN'T KNOW WHO CAPTAIN TOAD THE TREASURE TRACKER IS AND THAT IS INSANE. Also this week, as we finish Nintendo's Mario + Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story on 3DS, we talk about Luigi's glistening mustache, peeling down your Karibo, inflation, and finally Matthew locks Sam Elliott outside. This Week: We finish the game! Next Week: We get to Term…
 
Tonight we had some technical difficulties and as a result got to a bit of a late start… which caused us to lose track of the timing. As a result we recorded a pretty long show, but I think it was one of our better discussions. We start with Kodra explaining why he is the fiercest four year old you know and talking about Crusader Kings III some mor…
 
We are joined this episode with Kaleb from the Ultima Final Fantasy & Nudeclan Gaming podcast, as well as artist & gamer Riconius, to name our wishlist items for the FF7 Remake Part 2.

Kuzzle. *teehee* In this chunker of Bowser's Inside Story, Vanessa makes a shocking discovery: no one was exaggerating Luigi's treatment by the saucy Wisdurm. Also this chunker: Bowser learns to Body Slam, Mario finds a Star Cure, and finally, finally we see what's inside Bowser's Brain. This Week: We enter Bowser's BRAIN! Next Week: We finish the …
 
Tonight we start the show off with a bit of a retraction. Bel has found out that a lot of the weird mouse and camera interactions seem to have been caused by running RTX Voice while playing Avengers. As a result Bel talks about his experiences playing Avengers and how the story really shines but the gameplay is adequate but not as smooth as it coul…
 
This week, we are joined by two guests, Mike from the Resonant Arc YouTube channel, and our good friend and game developer, Hian, to discuss some of the most iconic RPGs across the past 4 PlayStation consoles!

Either Bill Paxton or Bill Pullman shows up as well in this star-studded episode of Square Roots! We continue with Nintendo's Bowser's Inside Story and stumble over Jesse's Girl 2, fail a whole bunch of minigames, find a kink Johnny doesn't want to talk about, Bowserimi Battles the Tower Robot, and we realize that this used to be a family podcast. …
 
Tonight we are back after having a week off due to scheduling. Bel is super excited to talk about Amazon’s New World, which finally leaves NDA. He goes into a deep dive of his experiences so far with the assorted systems of the game. From there we have a reasonable segue into a discussion about Guild Wars 2 and getting used to the WvW pvp system. W…
 
This week we discuss the recent confession from SEGA regarding the surprising sales for Persona 4 Golden, and their new commitment to porting games more "aggressively" in the future. Then we analyze some of the challenges developers have given as to why classic games are often NOT remastered. With a hyper specific deep-dive into Final Fantasy 7: Cr…
 
There's no way that things could get weird in this chunker of Bowser's Inside Story where Bowser eats his vegetables, right? Sam Elliott would disagree, and he is here to guide Vanessa through a world of forbidden pleasure. So much is learned. Johnny might stomp on a model city. Matthew comes out as a finsub. ALSO THERE IS NO BODY SWAPPING IN FATHE…

Bel spent a few hours playing the Avengers Beta and has some things to say about it. There are what he feels to be fundamental problems with the game that are not likely fixable before the September 4th launch. Kodra gives some recommendations for a few Sudoku games that allow you to play some of those interesting edge case games. We pick up a conv…

This week, Hat & Stan discuss the RPGs shown at Sony's recent State of Play. Specifically, is Genshin Impact a Breath of the Wild clone, or does it have an identity of it's own? Did God Fall make it's best appearance at this presentation, or did this distract some of the excitement that was felt for this PS5 exclusive. Will TemTem capture the heart…
