That's the thing you never challenge internet (in general too) when claims of tabuu in the journalism world is the worst when there's no going back or hiding once more proof comes to the surface. Like he brought this on himself and I have to believe the stuff being found is not kick while he's at his lowest, it just discover the truth, the origin and how far does this go with him. Most are probably finding this stuff to demean and what he claims his family (please stop harassing the guys family not cool)
But yeah, like I said he brought this upon himself. He was sure his way writing reviews is the way it should be done looking at other resources and then forming his opinion. That's straight from his response video. I think somewhere he deluded himself to think this okay and why are seeing so much of his previous work is plagiarized, add to the fact that he was so confident to issue that challenge. Those are the only two reasons why I think he what he did and issue a challenge to see if there's anymore where that came for. So I think at this point we should not be surprise any review he produce is not his own, not to add in the fact with IGN will be looked at disdain but as we can might imagine, it is not easy as it seems to work at IGN. So add that fact of pressure on this guy and his now reveal penchant for plagiarism, all this makes sense but is not right.
This video here from DreamcastGuy explains all this pressure and why he might went this path and got just got caught this time.
You can see how torn he is for his friend angry and sad at the same time, especially when he thought he really knew despite getting this dream job the pressure of the job.
This isn't the YouTuber I mentioned earlier in this thread where I first heard of Filip, it was from SpawnWave. He and Filip were small time around before the launch of the Switch he is the one that said check out this guys channel, I did and subscribe to him and thought he had a lot passion for Nintendo and was cool But like DCG, you never really know someone, huh?
Oh yeah just like DCG, SpawnWave his friends with Filip but unlike DCG he did not speak often with Filip often to really know what he had to endure at IGN.
Nonetheless, regardless how you feel, where we see news of him still popping up. I just don't how he can turn this around, even doing proper apology now or down the road. I don't think anyone will take him seriously or how he can come back in the industry in another.
Wishing him all the best in what he might pursue next cause he really is gonna need it.
