Banjo-Kazooie is a platform video game developed and published by Rare for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It was first released on June 29, 1998 in North America and on July 17, 1998 in Europe, and later re-released as an Xbox Live Arcade game for the Xbox 360 on December 3, 2008. Banjo-Kazooie is the first installment in the Banjo-Kazooie series, and chronicles the titular characters' encounter with series antagonist Gruntilda. The game's story focuses on Banjo and Kazooie's efforts to stop Gruntilda's plans to switch her beauty with Banjo's sister Tooty. The game features nine open levels where the player must complete a number of challenges like solving puzzles, jumping over obstacles, gathering objects, and defeating opponents.

The CompletionistEdit

Jirard reviewed Banjo Kazooie for the 5th episode of The Completionist, as well as the very first special episode: The Halloween Special for 2011! To celebrate Halloween, Jirard dresses as JonTron.

Instead of playing the original Nintendo 64 version of Banjo Kazooie, however, he plays the Xbox Live Arcade version.

Jirard lends praise to the graphics, level design, and music. Though he pokes fun at the style of dialogue, where characters move their mouths and make random sounds.The progression of power ups and collectibles is also received well by Jirard.


  • This episode gave birth to Greg's running joke of randomly saying "BEARS!!"
  • This episode also started Greg's obsession with Kinect Sports.
  • This marks the first time a rating inbetween two ratings has been given.
  • Greg makes his first physical appearance in this episode.

Super Beard Bros. Edit

Jirard and Alex began playing Banjo-Kazooie on their gameplay channel on January 7th, 2016. Much like the Completionist review, Jirard plays the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game.
