After being accused of plagiarizing his IGN Dead Cells review and then losing his job at the company, filip Miucin became silent. Until today. Miucin released a video on his personal YouTube channel that disputes the plagiarism's claims while saying "he takes" complete ownership of what happened. " He apologizes to IGN and develops Motion Twin as he pushes back on the people who send threats to him and his family. 19659003] "There were many circumstances around it, but at the end of the day," he said near the top of the video. "I was editorial management on it, so if something does, it's my responsibility."
On his Twitter account, Miucin said that he edited Dead Cells the video review for IGN, but has since deleted tweets. He then talked about his review process and explained explaining how the similarities were random.
"I do as much research as I can about it, whether it's a game, a product or an event," he said. "I try to look at all the resources that I have available to me before I start formulating my own critical opinions so I can offer the most consistent possible review. The bottom line is that what happened to Dead Cells review was not at all intentional. "
Miucin did not live for a long time on accurate details of why his review sounds very similar to Boomstick Gaming's review other than claiming it was unintentional. He also took the opportunity to defend his old FIFA 1
"Maybe [Jason Schreier from Kotaku] meant that if you have similar opinions you only bother," he said. "Or maybe he's just trying to get as many clicks of my name right now as possible, or maybe he just likes kicking people when they're down. I do not know. I mean, check it out for yourself and you're the judge . "
Thanks to its readers, Kotaku pointed out some cases where the Miucin's review and NintendoLife's FIFA 18 Switch review were suspiciously set. Like Dead Cells there are more than a few cases in which the paragraphs share striking similarities.
These similarities are even worse when considering that Miucin's piece went up a few days after the NintendoLife review and his review method of reading other material in advance. Nevertheless, it is worth pointing out that reviewers can have parallel opinions and be good, but expressing these points in almost the same way is where it begins to creep into the plagiarism. The problem was not that he liked Dead Cells as Boomstick Gaming; It was because he articulated his love for the game in an alarmingly similar manner after Boomstick's review had become alive.
This controversy has made Miucin the goal of fair and unfair attention. Judging by his video and the answers to his now-deleted tweets, he and his relatives were targeted by trolls. Calling it "quite staggering", Miucin claims that people have gone to their family social media accounts to spread hat and vitriol. He also expressed his gratitude for his fans and how he will continue to make videos to earn back his trust.
"I love what I do and I will continue to do it," he said in closing statement. "I do not want to stop making videos. I will prove to you that I can get better … better than I ever used to."
