    I was hoping someone could help me with the Ogre boss on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The boss battle is not hard at all, but thanks to the stupid QTEs I can not finish it.

    I think my game may just be glitched.

    I have destroyed the Ogre's first eye, but every time I try to swing from one fist to the other I fail. Every single time.
    In the last hour I have falied to do the QTE properly 42 times.
    Seriously, I'm counting. It's 42!

    Every guide says 'just follow the prompts' -but I am and it always fails.
    I have never had a hard time pressing the button when the outer concentric circles are vanishing. And I didn't have a single failure when I swung up and took out the Ogre's eye -but swinging from one arm to the other ALWAYS fails.

    Can someone tell me -it is just the Swing\Grapple button?
    Or should I be pressing one of the attacks instead?

    I have tried on two different consoles and with three different controllers in case I have a bad RT button.

    Okay, so I went and restarted the level.

    When you attack the Ogre's head it's grapple the fist, then attack the head (even though the game normally prompts a button).
    So maybe it's grapple the fist then attack the other fist?

    I don't know because nothing is working for me.
    I had really been enjoying the game until this part, but now I pretty much hate it.

    I was googling to see if I could find anything. A few people griping about the qtes in general but nothing specific.

    HOLY CRAP!

    I have no idea why, but I had to hold down LT, and then press X during the QTEs.
    I don't remember having to hold down LT at all for the other ones.
