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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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...

Cyael : Hope Filipin burgers soon

James Lawman : Wow, wasn’t expecting this.

Charles Massey : Glad to see how IGN are handling this

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.

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)

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.

Luke Weadock : Seems weird that he would plagiarize him, especially in this day and age where everything is able to be searched and found

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

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

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

HAIRCUT : Boomstick as in the guy from Death Battle?

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

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

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

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.

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!

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

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

HellDuke : Catching plagiarism of this kind is practically impossible. There is no sort of automation that will catch that. It has to be noted by the author or one of his viewers.

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

Sucy Q : I want you to Yong my Schlong

SH4D0WXR33CONt1 : Dislike them, but respect to IGN for how they've handled the situation.

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.

Michael floyd : One billion dollars *doctorevilvoice

Jasonx 17112 : You wanna make something do it your dang self don't ever copy someone's work because you're lazy.

Ed : IGN is a Boss!

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

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. :)

Bálint Mércz : *Irileth:* Oh look, how good are they handling this situation. It's almost like... they knew exactly how this would play out.

raik z : HI Yong I was wondering if you could make a video explaining why God of War won't win game of the year and also a second part explaining why red dead redemption 2 will win game of the year

CrowMercury : I’m really surprised how normal and well behaved this situation is being handled, which...is not good I’m surprised, kinda shows how the game media devolved into a mess. But I’m glad to finally breathe some normalcy in, from IGN also.

Aivre Escend : Ssshhhhh!!! I can hear a march of "don't praise things that was supposed to be done!" Comments coming!!

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

The Memory Card : Minor point: Peer is of German descent, so his name is pronounced like pear.

OG BamBam GO : I wonder what the guy that plagiarized is doing now lol

Lord Saladin : Punished Yong - A man robbed of his faith in gaming
