I'm playing Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning on the Hard difficulty setting because I would like to get all of the achievements on one playthrough. In some areas I tend to die quite a bit and I've noticed that after a certain number of deaths in the same area the game will ask if I want to change to a lower difficulty. I am paranoid that at some point I will be spamming the 'A' button to get going again and accidentally bump down my difficulty, come to the end of the game and come to find that I missed the achievement for beating the game on Hard.

Is there a way to make the game not tempt me into playing on an easier difficulty?

I just flipped through all of the settings on PC and several forums and I didn't see anything of the sort. You would think after you refused the offer X amount of times they would just stop asking. I have only got it once on my game, but I am playing on normal. I can't confirm this, but I would think that even if you hit 'A' they probably ask you if you are sure that it what you want to do.

Actually, I'm pretty sure they don't. Either that or I was spamming the reload-button faster than I thought when I accidentally changed my difficulty yesterday. – Tzarium Mar 5 '12 at 12:59
I guess worst case scenario, save often and if you bump it down by accident reload from a previous save. This might be a tad bit easier on PC though. – Emerica. Mar 5 '12 at 13:12
