One week ago, Jirard “Dragonrider” Khalil had… changed.
That one video gamer who many have come to know and love as The Completionist, for some inexplicable reason, took a turn for the demonic on the heels of his 99th review for the SNES title Mega Man X 3, and Greg Wilmot, series cohost and the last to have interacted with Jirard, had since gone missing.
Somehow, this was all tied to the black sheep of Sonic games, the forever scorned ugly duckling, Sonic Team’s pitch for the 15th anniversary of the franchise.
Some of you had the misfortune of coming across this title. Others among the fanbase, be they wary or the next gen of Sonic fans, haven’t had the opportunity. But, hey, there are still people who have managed to extract some enjoyment out of the game even SEGA have since chosen to ignore.
For the show’s 100th episode and Season 3 finale, The Completionist tackles Sonic the Hedgehog for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, and the stakes have never been higher. Will the game prove too broken to be completed? Will Gamestop ever develop anti-demonic possession countermeasures for one of the most critically panned titles of all time? Can the fans unite through their common hatred towards Sonic ’06 and manage to save Jirard and Greg!? And will they ever be able to savour the delectable taste of an ice cream sandwich once more!? Find out below!
That being said, should you have enjoyed the ride at their expense, be sure to check out the rest of the expansive The Completionist library! Congratulations on making it to the triple digit mark, Jirard!
