No Tomb Raider Prelaunch Demo

Karl Stewart tweets the announcement that the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot will not include a prerelease demo, because they "don't want to spoil the story" (or maybe they don't want to take any more flack over it). Word is: "For all those @tombraider fans asking. There are no plans to release a demo of the game pre-launch. We don't want to spoil the story........" Thanks GamesRadar.

Just how bad are the QTE's? It's all I hear about in regards to this game anymore.

And on the subject of digital-only, I never would have noticed. I haven't bought a retail game disc since 2000.

PC Gamer (so take it for what it's worth) said the first few hours of the game are basically "Watch Lara Get Tortured" porn, and your interactions are limited to "hold forward" and occasionally "press the button that the QTE wants you to press."

Lara will be climbing a cliff, and will slip and scramble for a hand-hold and have to fight to regain her balance, until she finally managed to somehow pull herself up to the top of the cliff, and your interaction throughout all that was to "hold forward."

That's not a game. That's a developer jerking off all over themselves and imagining they're making a movie.

I didn't mind the QTEs in the MW2 single player, but they were an extremely small part of the game.
