As I was sitting here last night, getting ready for the mega-LIVE show (which is lost to history due to an audio glitch on the replay) I came here to write this one up real quick. I didn’t get it done, so here we are this morning. In case you missed it yesterday, gaming site VG247 recently did a review of Uncharted 4. They weren’t too thrilled with the game, calling it “formulaic.” There’s only one problem with that conclusion. They weren’t playing Uncharted 4. They were instead playing the remastered edition of Uncharted 2. To say this is hilarious would be a massive understatement.

I guess it’s just a sign of the times. You would think that making sure you knew what game you were actually playing would be at the top of a reviewer’s list, but sound thinking like that seems to be a relic of a bygone era. They tried to blame it on the Tokyo Game Show, but idiocy has to be the number one culprit:

On September 30 we published an article titled “Is Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End too formulaic?” based on what we thought was a hands-on session with Uncharted 4 at the Tokyo Game Show.

We didn’t realise it at the time; what we’d played wasn’t Uncharted 4, but the remastered Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, from the recently released Uncharted Collection. We were not aware of this until after the article went live.

As soon as Sony notified us of our mistake we immediately unpublished the article as it was clearly based on one massive error on our part. TGS is busy and obviously the majority of signage isn’t in English, but none of that excuses the fact that we seriously fucked up.

This whole clusterfuck has spawned a new hashtag: . It’s one of the best things I think I’ve seen over my 14 months with GamerGate…

The whole thing is a disaster for VG247, but attention spans are so short nowadays, that it probably won’t hurt them that badly. It’s definitely one of the top 5 fails I’ve seen during my time in GamerGate, though. I simply can’t comprehend how an outlet could fuck up this big, but they did. Also, sorry this column is late, but I was kinda sick after the show last night, so I crashed. The LIVE show is a lost treasure due to the audio issue on the replay. Still, we’ll be live on Saturday night with Janet Bloomfield, and I’ll have the audio fixed on that one for sure. This is why you should start preparing the stream 30 minutes early, people. I won’t make that mistake again. Be back in a minute with my thoughts on Master Milo ripping KotakuInAction.
