The Completionist Edit

Jirard reviewed Super Meat Boy for the seventh episode of The Completionist. The episode acts as a continuation of the previous episode, Sonic 3 and Knuckles, where it was revealed that Edmund McMillen, creator of Super Meat Boy, had challenged Jirard to beat the game.

Jirard is eager to get into the game due to its legacy as an extremely difficult game. He lends heavy praise to the opening cinematics, which immediately set up the premise to the game. He also enjoys the game's humor and simple plot. However, he calls the presentation "overwhelming" at times, due to the number of things in the game that pose a deadly threat.

While Jirard admits that the game is very difficult, he notes that the controls are very tight, meaning no deaths are cheap. He also lends credit to the meat juice mechanic, which allows the player to deduce how they have to change their tactics to avoid dying the same way multiple times. He's also fond of the other characters you can play in the game, if only for the novelty. The amount of unlockables also overwhelms him a bit. Overall, he finds the experience stressful, but satisfying.

After Jirard supposedly "dies" after beating Super Meat Boy, Greg decides to take over, complete with an intro that displays how terrible he is at games, and a title card that dubs him "The Mediocre-ist." Despite the fact that Jirard is not actually dead, Greg insists that he is dead, and rates the game "Beard It!" in his honor.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first review to give a joke rating.
  • It also marks the birth of "The Mediocre-ist."

 Super Beard Bros. Edit

Started on April 28, 2015 Jirard and Alex are continuing "The Road to Mario Maker" by playing Super Meat Boy. Jirard has already completed Super Meat Boy on episode 7 of The Completionist and is now showing the struggle of truly completing such a game.

Throughout the series, Jirard and Alex continue the running gag from Kaizo Mario World 2 of Jigsaw from the Saw franchise enjoying Super Bear Bros. Eventually, the two bring up interest in playing Saw: The Video Game for the show. They originally didn't plan on playing much of it, but many fans requested the two to play the game in its entirety. The two started playing the game in Super Meat Boy's finale after Jirard finished the last level.
