Dark Souls YouTuber Accused of Plagiarism #DarkSouls #DarkSouls2


Gaming Respawn reports:

Quote:
The Dark Souls community has been set upon its head today, when one of its most prominent members had plagiarism accusations cast against him. VaatiVidya currently has 425,136 subscribers on YouTube, as well as a Patreon pulling in $5,572.41 a month.

Aegean of Astora also showed results from plagiarism programs which concluded that there was indeed a very high chance of plagiarism. VaatiVidya responded by claiming that this could in-fact be due to quoting items descriptions and other stories from the game, you’ll have to draw your own conclusions from that.

Aegon of Astora's video after the break. VaatiVidya, responded to the accusations here.

Not sure what you're agreeing to, since I do not have any idea what the person in question was doing.

I ain't going to watch a 30 minute video about this either, but it's explained in the article.

"The Dark Souls (and Bloodborne) lore is well-known for being very subtle and open to interpretation, hence the reason why such a strong community has formed around the game."

I guess he's just repeating peoples theories on the lore without crediting anyone.

Looks to me like one fanfic writer ripped off another fanfic writer, both of which were ripping off From Software and making a living from their source material.

I really couldn't be bothered to watch more than 5 minutes of the video and read the first few comments, the most striking of which was: "ur a furry"

I'm a bit disappointed that none of the DS fans here seem to care more about this than me, an open From Software detractor...

Amazing how the response is different when developers point out these youtubers are ripping off their assets, IP etc to make money.

Guy getting paid several k per month in patreon uses everything posted on reddit as public knowledge and usable as source for his entertainment vids without attributing it.
Guy who worked months sees his work cherry sniped by this guy, pretty upset about it.
