If you're not a fan of QTEs, this news is for you.
It seems the anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will give players the option to turn off Quick Time Events. As reported by SegmentNext , this option is available in the freshly available demo.
In the playable sample (which is approximately 20 minutes long), players assume the role of legendary vampire hunter, Belmont. However, in a dark twist, he has turned into Dracula, and he's fighting off a bunch of knights that are attacking his home. QTEs play a prominent role, it seems, as they're even part of the game's platforming elements. If you want to remove them, simply go into the Options menu and get rid of 'em.
QTEs are always a subject of much controversy. I never really mind them, provided they're not too overdone and they're not prohibitively annoying. But others really hate them. Lords of Shadow 2 will launch for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in North America on February 25, and three days later in Europe.
