    I mentioned this in the Dead Cells thread when the story first hit, assuming that it was a one off and not worth creating a new thread over, but holy shit how it has escalated.

    His video explanation/rebuttal is also class: 'I take full responsibility for this, but I did nothing wrong. I apologise to the game makers and my previous employers, but not to the people I plagiarised'

    I like how he says that the 'normal' way for journalists is to basically google all the other reviews and read those before playing the game and doing your own. But that's 100% not plagiarism.
    Which I'm pretty sure is absolute bollocks anyway. Most people lucky enough to make it in video game journalism (or journalism in general) are the sort of people that take pride in expressing their own opinions and experiences. As would many that wish they had the job.

    This guy is a fraud and showed no remorse when called out, just digging his hole further. Good riddance.

    For as much of a twat as this bloke is, the death threats and threats to his family are fucking pathetic. It's no small irony that he's exactly the type of scumbag those pukes deserve.

    It was pointed out in another YT video by an ex-IGN employee that the whole purpose of video game reviews is to play a game and then give your own opinions on it. For this guy to plagiarise other people's opinions is bizarre; there's some suggestions (without evidence) that he doesn't actually play games, but wants to call himself a video game journalist to satisfy his own ego.

    The well-known plagiarist I knew at uni (see post on previous page) was basically fuelled by a blend of self-belief and self-righteousness. If you genuinely believe that you are so great that you can do no wrong because anything you do must - by definition - be right (because it's you doing it), then plagiarism is small beans.

    I tend not to trust people who don't have a healthy measure of self-doubt.

    This is it. Plagiarised reporting, while obviously wrong, at least carries some logic that he's being too lazy to research things, speak directly to devs and publishers etc and is gaining information without crediting the sources.

    However, he was repeatedly copying the opinions of other journalists, as if he can't be bothered to even play the games properly and formulate his own opinions. It's all very bizarre.

    Very strange individual, even on his apology that he posted he'd monetized the video.

    Guy at art college I was with was the only one to get a first class degree come results time.
    He spent the entire third year copying design work from a popular book considered cutting edge at the time. All of the tutors had had their heyday in the 60ís and 70ís and hadnít a clue.
    It was pointed out to them after the results were published by standing in front of his show and turning to page 12, page 67, etc and the dumb cunts just shrugged.

    I have a two year old (almost 3) who has been potty trained for around 4 months. To begin with she had no accidents and loved using the potty and the Ďbig girl toiletí but the last couple of weeks she has just stopped telling me when she needs to go.
    She will happily wet her pants and then sit in them until I notice, preferring not to tell anyone. When we do notice she doesnít want to change them and puts up a fight to keep wet ones on.
    Is this regression? She will go for a wee on the potty if I physically put her on it every hour or two but wonít tell me she needs a wee/ take herself to the toilet.
    Iíve asked her if she wants to go back into nappies like a baby and she doesnít seem bothered.
    Not really sure what to do about it all. Any advice?

    We need a movement that centres around ethics in videogame journalism.

    Maybe some kind of open air door can be used for part of its name, like canal lock. GamerCanalLock, that sounds good right?

    Based on that thread she also appears to actually be a bloke.
