Hexen: Beyond Heretic

edited January 2012 in Singularity Engine++
From hit developer Raven software came an impressive game

Running an improved, and for the time impressive, Doom Engine it is the direct sequel to Smash Hit Heretic.

It allows the player to pick one of three classes

Fighter

Cleric

And Finally Mage

Each allows for a different play style and affects difficulty at different points.

This game was so successful they put an expansion and a sequel!

It was bigger, ran on the fucking quake engine, had 4 player classes, and was three fucking D!

Let us talk about these awesome classic games, and as well, they're ten bucks on steam and I want to see how any kind of multiplayer holds up on these things. It'll be great.

    come on now how can the warrior have the best armour rating?

    look at him

    "Haha! Your attacks are useless! Don't even try to hit my shoulders, hands, feet, pelvis or the top of my head! You fool!"

    hexen is awesome

    anyone who says otherwise is banned until you send me a screenshot of you holding a piece of paper with your screen name written on it, in front of hexen's victory screen

    Because, chainmail bikini man.

    The less armour you're wearing the more protective it is.

    Look how conservative the mage is. you can't even see his nipples!

    Hexen owns

    Did Hexen have the gauntlets that shot lightning or was that just Heretic?

    As a kid I was (still am) a huge star wars fan and basically just ran around in Heretic with those things pretending I was the emperor.

    Also, there are some dudes using idtech 4 to remake hexen.

    That's right, a doom 3 engine hexen game.

    So, yeah. I could probably post more information about that.

    But i want to test it out first and the downloading keeps screwing up.

    Hexen was the best use of the Doom engine if I can recall.

    I think there was a Star Wars game that wasn't too bad.

    hopefully its better than the Doom remakes on the doom 3 engine. those mods just did not capture the originals at all

    Considering the current state of raven?

    Probably never?

    Unless id owns the ip, then, probably also never.

    remakes of the originals need to make sure to remove looking up and down and have your shots automatically target things higher or lower than you. also need to walk at about 60 km/h

    I don't recall playing Hexen, but I did play the shareware edition of Heretic.
