About

Wrote a preview of video game Uncharted 4, scheduled for a 2016 release, describing it as “repetitive” for an “Uncharted veteran” such as her, without noticing she was actually playing the game’s 2009 predecessor Uncharted 2. VG247 removed the article and issued a transparent apology once Uncharted’s publisher Sony notified them of the mistake, although site owner Patrick Garratt acted very belligerant to people discussing the mistake.
