The last week has been a total mess but I wanted to rant to sum up my final thoughts on everything involving my friend Filip and everything that has happened with him, IGN, and his youtube channel.

Former IGN editor Filip Miucin, who was fired this week after an investigation into allegations that he had plagiarized a video game review, responded last night on his YouTube channel, telling viewers that there were “a lot of circumstances” surrounding the review and that he did not intend to plagiarize from another channel.
This video was later deleted after the backlash it got.
“The bottom line is that what happened with the Dead Cells review was not at all intentional,” he said. “So, with that said, I just want to apologize to everybody at IGN for all of the undeserved criticisms and doubt that may have been sparked in their credibility as a respected source for games media.”
A small YouTuber named Boomstick Gaming published a video with the title “IGN Copied my Dead Cells Review: What do I do?” In it, he laid out a compelling case that the official IGN review of Dead Cells, written by Miucin, was a rewritten version of his own review, which had been published several days earlier. On Wednesday, IGN investigated, and the outlet fired Miucin that evening.
Miucin had not publicly responded until last night’s video. In it, he also apologized to Motion Twin, the maker of Dead Cells. He did not apologize to the YouTuber Boomstick Gaming, but he said he has “nothing but the best wishes” for him and offered him advice for the future.
