IGN now has a new Dead Cells Review to replace the one removed earlier this week amid allegations of plagiarism. There is a note at the end of the new review about the situation, but they have completely deleted the page that hosted the original controversial review, which had become their explanation of what happened. This video from Filip Miucin, the editor who created the review, has his reaction to the controversy and his firing. The tone is a bit defiant, as while he says he takes "complete ownership" of what happened with the Dead Cells review, he does not actually cop to plagiarism. He says what happened was not intentional, and "there were a lot of circumstances surrounding it," which he does not detail. He apologizes to IGN and Dead Cells developer Motion Twin, expressing hopes this doesn't harm either of them. He does not apologize to Boomstick Gaming, though he does send "best wishes" to the author he allegedly copied. He also condescends to offer Boomstick some advice, presumably based on his experience "working as a professional in the games media industry." Less than half-way through he pivots completely and goes on offense. He challenges Kotaku's assertion that he had previously copied a FIFA 18 review from Nintendo Life. This prompted the author of the Nintendo Life review to post his own response video to make the case that this was also plagiarism. Miucin also defies Kotaku to find other examples where he appropriated someone else's work. It turns out they were up to the challenge. The report similarities between his Metroid: Samus Returns for Nintendo 3DS Review and a review posted on Engadget five days earlier. They say they have reached out to Miucin for further comment.
