Shawn Petraschuk's Reviews

Fearless leader, dashing and debonair Executive Editor, and Co-Founder/Owner of COGconnected. Raised on an NES, came of age on the PS1, turned 'crusty, old grumpy gamer' on the Xbox One and PS4. I play it all from shooters to RPGs all while grumbling about getting owned by 12 year olds. The reflexes just ain't what they used to be ya know?

70 / 100 - Batman: Arkham VR
Oct 31, 2016

We’ve seen the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne play out in numerous ways but none of them so visceral as to put you into that world directly. It’s a surreal experience to be Bruce at that moment.

A strong narrative and stellar cast are the only things that hold together an experience that is absolutely rife with bugs and downright questionable design choices.

An homage to the amazing JRPGs of the 90s, I Am Setsuna is a love letter to your childhood written with passion and penned with respect by equally passionate developers.

The Technomancer isn’t necessarily a bad game, it just isn’t a good one.

90 / 100 - Quantum Break
Apr 1, 2016

When the powers are flying and debris litters the air, strangely frozen in time, it creates some of the most beautiful chaos I've ever seen in a game.
