- Kunzelman was being paid for his contributions to Five Out of Ten, Alan Williamson's magazine.
- "Edited by Alan Williamson, Five Out of Ten is a magazine of video game criticism written for a general audience of people who, you know, care about that thing."
- "I’m a fan of Five Out of Ten for a number of reasons, but in particular is the way that profits are shared among the contributors: for every purchase of this issue of Five Out of Ten, I make something around $1. That might not sound like a big deal, but a couple hundred purchases would really help me out. If you like the writing I do here on this blog, or you like my twitter, or you hate me but want to make me rich, consider purchasing the issue."

- As of this date, Cameron Kunzelman has only had involvement in Issue 3 of Five Out of Ten. However, Five Out of Ten: Year One Reloaded was a reprint of the first five issues, including the issue he was involved in. Five Out of Ten: Year One Reloaded was released on November 19th, 2013.

- Cameron Kunzelman was counted amongst the contributors in Five Out of Ten before the review was written. https://archive.is/l2Lv9
- Cameron Kunzelman was also counted as a contributor to Critical Distance, in which Kunzelman is System Administrator. https://archive.is/e9zQb
- Both Cameron Kunzelman and Alan Williamson were involved in "Nightmare Mode" (2011) https://archive.is/YBtsI
- Potential Conflicts of Interest.
- Several entanglements. Kunzelman was a contributor for Five Out of Ten and recieves monetary compensation when Issue 3 is purchased (probably Year One Reloaded, as well), he also expressed interest in continuing in maintaining that relationship. Kunzelman is also a contributor for Critical Distance, in which Williamson is also among the staff as System Administrator. Furthermore, they were both involved in "Nightmare Mode". There is also the comment over Williamson assisting in a "big project" with Kunzelman. All together, I feel these facts lend to a potential conflict of interest with Kunzelman reviewing Escape To Na Pali in Paste.
