The Completionist Nintendo Podcast

The Completionist Jirard Khalil Joins the Show!

Here comes a new challenger! This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, the next generation of hosts, Cameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill are joined by none other than The Completionist himself, Jirard Khalil! After a brief discussion of multiplayer games to play with that special someone in celebration of Valentine’s Day, the gang dives right into interviewing Jirard for the main event. Marc leads the way for the discussion, picking Jirard’s brain with insightful questions about everything from creating content on a changing platform and The Completionist’s upcoming tenth anniversary to pulling through a pandemic and the potential for a Completionist-themed indie game.

In this honest interview, Jirard opens up about all the highs and lows that come with managing a long-running YouTube channel. Whether it is addressing the danger of burnout, the anxiety of meeting audience expectations, or navigating the channel toward future success, Jirard holds back no punches as he blasts through some of the long term enigmas all content creators must face. Closing things out, the gang briefly discusses some of the indie titles they are personally looking forward to, including Berserk Boy and Rose City Games’ Floppy Knights.
