Okami HD on Switch is even better than I expected.
 
Apart from the (no exaggeration) 20 minute intro where you're literally just pressing the a button to skip through dialogue that doesn't even have any real bearing on the story. Fucking great once you actually start playing though.

No Mans Sky is very different to when last played.

IGN straight up copied a small YouTubers Dead Cells review, is it really that hard to review a game like that yourself? The game does look good though, I just bought it on Switch

I can't get my head round this, the guy is (was) the Nintendo editor for the world's biggest gaming site. People would kill for that gig. How did he think he could rip off a review word for word and get away with it? He didn't even bother to change it in the slightest, now he has completely fucked his career.

This is why I try to steer clear of reading other reviews if I'm writing one myself. Phrases, ideas, even entire sentences can stick in your head without you realising. Plagiarism is pretty much the worst thing you can do as a journalist other than outright fabrication.

That is pretty dumb. He only just joined IGN recently too hasn't he ?
He's fucked his whole career over.

I've not rated Filip since the day he joined, seems to lack confidence and conviction in anything he says. I'm guessing he probably left it too late to write a review but surely it would have been better to just delay it a day.

A bit like calling your mate up the day before your homework was due in and asking him if you can copy his.  He probably forgot he had to do the review or delayed it until it was too late, leaving him with one option. Would've been better off just not submitting anything though.

Even if he was going to plagarise a review because didn't have time to play it or whatever at least fucking change the words around a bit lol. 
 
I can't believe an adult in professional journalism could be so dumb. 
 
i cant even feel sorry for him losing his job and career which inevitably will as its so stupid.

Yeah, it is proper bizarre.  Converting a review into your own words would only take a few hours max, especially as someone who is supposedly skilled with words.  Seems like a case of self-sabotage.

What frame rate is it? I only played it for an hour when it came out so would like to give it another go

The mad thing is he was bigging it up on Twitter as “the first IGN video I’ve edited myself...can’t wait to share it with you”.

Why draw attention to something if you’ve blatantly ripped it off? Maybe he pulled an all nighter and honestly didn’t realise he was regurgitating a video he watched while fucked on meth and red bull.

There’s no way you’d risk your career on something so stupid, surely?

That's it. If you wanted to rip off someone else's views it's easy to do that in a way that isn't just taking what they say word for word. Transcribing a youtube video sounds like even more work. So bizarre.
 
edit - actually, it's not like every word was identical, but there are a lot of similar phrases: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKF6xnvaCsE

Feels like 30, can’t be sure though. Fairly steady and stable with gorgeous cell-shade graphics though. Strong Wind Waker vibes.

I didn't think a rogue like game would be for me but I'm enjoying Dead Cells, 'just one more try' is something I'll be saying to myself a lot, it may get a bit tedious eventually but it's good so far

Dead Cells is fully sick but these games are my go to, so.

Can see me sinking some serious time into this one.

That was a short career, what an idiot. Surely he can't get a job in games media again.

Would be surprised if he got any media job ever again. Especially with a memorable name like that.
 
Turns out he's been at it for a while too. His FIFA 18 review is another cut and paste job:
 

Here’s an excerpt from NintendoLife review of FIFA 18 for Switch posted on 29 September 2017:
However, because it’s not running on the Frostbite engine, FIFA 18 on Switch doesn’t play exactly like the other current-gen versions. The pace is slightly faster and player animations and physics aren’t quite as fluid, lending the game an ever-so-slightly more arcade feel (but not to any major degree).
And an excerpt from a video review from Miucin posted on 1 October 2017:
Only this time, it’s running on a custom engine that EA designed specifically for Switch, which means that it doesn’t play exactly like the Xbox One and PS4 editions of the game do. The animations and physics are definitely not as fluid and the pacing feels slightly faster, ultimately leaving the game feeling a little less realistic and slightly more arcadey.

He's finished. Can't believe someone was that dumb. 
Ruined his whole career and will be blacklisted within the whole industry all because he couldn't be fucked to write his own 4 minute review for an indie game. What a remarkable fucking idiot.

Wow, Dead Cells is very, very good.

The gameplay is tight, fun and responsive.

The upgrades and exploration make you want to keep playing over and over again.

I think this one is gonna overtake EtG for me and come very close to Isaac in terms of enjoyment and hours spent.

The art, levels, enemies, pick-ups, stat boosts, etc. are all great. Interesting and addictive.

Just waiting for my Switch to recharge and gonna drain the battery for the third time today I think.

Play Expo in London this weekend looks pretty sick. I fancy picking up another Virtual Boy and a Jaguar there hopefully. Worth it just for all the arcade machines being set to free play tbh.
