Itch-HeSay : For as much as people hate IGN, they do seem to be handling this particular situation fairly well.

Dave Dogge : One million dollah !

Theoddballguy : I’m glad boomstick is getting a lot of subs now. He completely deserves it. His reviews are really good and his wording is great. He definitely deserves more recognition. I’ve been watching his videos for a little while now. And it sucks that this whole thing happened to him. Philip deserved it man.

ProtoMario : I gave the guy a shout out too, can't believe someone would plagerize him ...smh

Trey Keele : GIVE HIM A JOB. His review of the game was concise, thorough, and well written.

TheUnholyOne : And now he has a new 40 thousand subs, including one from me. It's kinda funny that such an awful thing is helping him make a name for himself. He was worthy of stealing from, I can absolutely recommend him.

DonnieBoy619 : Glad to see IGN is actually being real professional about all of this. Was worried they’d just brush it off.

Apoxiosis : screw reimbursement, ign should give the dude a job. looks like they have a recently vacated position

Tymerc : Yong would you ever be willing to make a video showing off that room? You seem to have a nice collection of items.

Charles Van Noland : Meanwhile, Dead Cells is getting all kinds of exposure.

Moe Rahman : I’d honestly ask for a golden ticket to the chocolate factory

Carolina VC : Kudos to boomstick tho; after the ArenaNet controversy its refreshing to see politeness when dealing with this kind of problems

Charles Massey : Glad to see how IGN are handling this

Derek Silvestre : That game got hella publicity from all this lmaoooo

Fukukaze : I'm calling it now. IGN will most likely employ and take the guy behind Boomstick Gaming under their wing, to replace the now fired Filip Miucin. That'd certainly make for a real happy ending to all this. Plus, that way the guy's dream will come true as well. He'll be able to earn a living from what he loves most, reviewing games. Everybody wins! Except Filip, yeah... he's pretty fucked.

Shalashaska : Wonder what a known plagiarist is gonna do for work now..

A Person With a Name : So that guy got fired, ey... wonder what Jessica would think of this.

doom7ish : The guy had it coming, never plagiarize a paper or a small YouTubers video.

Palmtop Tiger : Dude half your video is always a repeat of news you discussed previously. Your fans keep up enough that I don't think it's necessary lol

Cyael : Hope Filipin burgers soon

ketchupkatsup : Haven't heard from Filip regarding all of this...guess he must be a.....Dead Cell

FreelanceXD : Dislike them, but respect to IGN for how they've handled the situation.

Mickey : They should Hire Boomstick Gaming his reviews are obviously good enough to steal. IGN should hire him he's a really good reviewer so good that the editor for the game Dead Cells was willing to steal his work and not put in the time and hard work to make his own review with his thoughts and opinions on the game.

stingray427man : Plagiarism is a choice, the editor is responsible, not IGN. Gun violence is a choice, the user is responsible, not guns.

Mei Lee : The question is... it was only that video that got "copy & paste " ? cause now i cant stop thinking about, if IGN have original videos. (Sorry my english)

Pico Enelojo : But the greater question remains... where in the world is Filip Miucin?

ir4kk : id be like: "yeah, whoever fired the guy who plagiarized me....I want his job."

Lily Mega Eevee : Its nice of them to make up for it. While IGN will still be a crappy journalism site, I can respect what they are doing. Hopefully all plagiarising people will be caught and fired like this.

Moon Door : Good and bad things happens for a reason, take what happens to this guy. If it weren't for the copycat IGN journo, his channel probably would never have such attention. Don't get me wrong, the guy who had was copied is really good with his reviews but still...

Sucy Q : I want you to Yong my Schlong

Matt McCarthy : 1) Thank you for the "NEEEEOOOOOOOOOOZE Update" !! 2) You're welcome for tuning in! 3) I enjoy your content, but have no cash for patreon! 4) I'll stay tuned on YongYea and I-oooowwwSeee YOU next time!

James Lawman : Wow, wasn’t expecting this.

The One : It's all about PR. By compensating him they won't lose much yet in eyes of massess they will appear as the good guys who care about people who are below them. While i'll l admit that they did a good and nice thing i absolutely refuse to believe that they did that out of the goodness of their heart.

AnimeFanFTW : I hate IGN. But sometimes *Sometimes* They do seem to care.

ThatAussieBloke : Props to IGN for dealing with it correctly, unlike dEAth for example

BT 7274 : So the guy tried to steal from a smaller YouTube channel for his personal gain only to lose his job and give the channel a larger following. Karma is quite the mistress.

Benjamin Christiansen : It feels like for as bad as this all started, it's being handled more or less as best as it could be. And really happy that the guy is getting subs, attention, and making some more ad revenue. It's nice to see a pretty good ending to this whole story. :)

Michael floyd : One billion dollars *doctorevilvoice

Milo WolfFace : Good on IGN. A pretty good endding overall and just brings a smile to my face.

꧁꧂ Nate Higgers ꧁꧂ : If I was the guy, I'd get a hand job from the IGN CEO as a compensation.

thesuicidefox : Honestly can't believe people would even bother to plagiarize in 2018. Like, do you really think you can get away with it? Do you really think no one will notice? Boggles my mind.

Scorpanoc2 : IGN should offer boomstick a job. They are looking for a new employee now lol

HAIRCUT : Boomstick as in the guy from Death Battle?

Tomeus Kalle : #IGNapoligizeforthefirsttime.

Fyrfly : IGN needs a new reviewer, Boomstick needs a job. they already used his review. I see a solution here.

Optimus Prime : Punished Yong - A man robbed of his faith in gaming

Lucky24 : IGN fired the guy responsible and even contacted Boomstick, apologized and stayed professional throughout this whole debacle, IGN should be criticized, but for other reasons, they took the necessary actions this time at least.

Dark Guardian : Good thing Boomstick Gaming has a real deep vocabulary like a car reviewer. 🙂

shub125 : I dislike ign with a passion, with their click bait attitude and giving high scores to games that don't deserve it while giving low scores to games that are actually polished. So seeing them doing something good actual put a smile on my face. Ign may do some questionable things but this is definitely one of their highlights of showing they are not all bad.
