When No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle 2 begins, two modern-day swordsmen face each other across the moonlit rooftop. Travis ignites his energy blade. The Cloud cosplayer on the opposing side draws his buster sword. They charge each other; blades clash and sparks fly. A blue arrow appears onscreen, and you -- the M-rated gamer controlling Travis -- swing the Wii remote as part of a mercifully forgiving Quick-Time Event. The ensuing scene is anything but merciful.
