Do we want a new Hexen game?
considering that Raven Software is owned by Activision, and the fact that the publisher's flagship FPS has definitely influenced non-Call of Duty shooters owned by Activision, do we really want a reboot of the franchise?

Can't be any worse than Hexen II... the early previews made it sound so much better than it ended up being.

No. Not from Activision c*nts.

I mean Hexen has even more f*cked up and complex level design than doom, i'm enjoying it a lot. Seeing a railroaded shooter with regeneration and 80% of cutscenes instead of gameplay will break my heart.

Great link Shadow, that actually looks like a good game, and pretty hexen like so far from what they have shown. Keeping my eye on that one.

As for the thread's discussion, a modern hexen sequel would have to be done right or not at all, and in my opinion made VERY MUCH like the original hexen as far as the maps and puzzles go/work.

Actually Techland is HIV positive and is confirmed for being unable to make a balanced and well-designed RPG game. I suspect Hellraid will have weapons that break after 3 uses, "challenges" that will suddenly level your character 15 times and render your equipment useless, enemies that inexplicably scale with you despite no story explanation at all, and 90 hours of backtracking gameplay running through areas that should have fast travel or at least vehicles.

My worry is that Raven Software might be a shadow of its former self, and if tasked to reboot Hexen, it'd be Call of Duty with magic tacked on.

I totally agree with festiven00b. Raven was good with Heretic and amazing when they developed Hexen. The game was much more complex than Doom 2 and the level design was rich and varied. The coop mode was superb at the time.

I am still looking for people to play online to Hexen using Doomsday. Anyone there wants to play Hexen/Heretic-2?? Please write to me!!

I want more games like Hexen. I think Dark Souls & D&D Online try to recreate the experience although one is 3rd person and the other is an mmo.

p.s. I had the dnd games on the 3do :)
and witchaven on pc
