I started playing Hexen for the first time about 4 years ago, and I got incredibly lost and had to resort to a walkthrough. It's not even that it's a maze, there are cause and effect mechanics that allow you to progress,
and it's totally possible to get your character "stuck" in many areas.

The real shame isn't that I used a walkthrough, it's that I still haven't finished it because I can't get past a certain spot even with the walkthrough. I must of had read three or four guides and I can't figure out where I'm supposed to go for the life of me. About two years ago, I packed up the PC that I was playing it on and I haven't touched it since.

ok I just realized the strafing works different depending on which of the 2 types of control you use.

with stick control : there's one button which engaes sidestepping but doesn't move you when you press it. gotta be used it conjunction with the stick to move you. it really only sidesteps and doesn't circle strafe.

with d-pad control : L and R sidestep in their respective direction and do move you by their own. by using it in conjunction with the d-pad, you're able to perform some pretty good circle strafing actually.

I do like the overall movement of the stick option, it's quick to hit diagonal direction running, and turn around for a quick retreat and setup yourself better. you can sort of circle strafe for a short distance with this control option, but not full-on circlestrafe forever.

so yeah happy to see that it's actually manageable somewhat to circle strafe enemies.

so far I'm ok in that regard. it is dark(some ground scapes are really dark in fact) but there's enough contrasting highlight that it hasn't been impossible to navigate so far. I do have a very good crt that can get very bright while keeping a good picture(I can really crank the brightness and it still looks very good) and I'm using a good connexion (s-video), so I,m sure this helps.

Been forever since I played an FPS on single-stick gamepad (or an FPS, period - happy enough tinkering with DOOMBuilder these days tbh), but that sounds like the one I'd use. I always favoured [strafe l] and [strafe r] buttons, ala OG DOS DOOM (, and . for l/r by default, mappable to arrow keys via the 1337 HAX config program).

Tried playing 32X DOOM for a laugh a while back, just couldn't stand its "hold C to enable strafe" setup. This on a six-button controller, even. Would rather play GBA DOOM with its L/R strafing, though the game is compromised nearly as much by the tiny screen/speakers. Gotta be on a nice big monitor with floor-shaking bass behind every murderous blast. Image Image

yeah the one-button setup of ''hold to engage sidestep'' really doesn't work.

MDK 2 on the DC had a great scheme. Move with face buttons, shoot/jump with triggers, and aim with thumb.

Burinju, this is how it looks in my setup.

Love the orange and red skies in that game.

Really manageable. there's a cave part in that level that's also extremely dark and I'm also able to manage that.

Sometimes I can ask more skilful gamers for help. Every single time I am sorry for doing that but I am addicted to wins over my colleagues :) also I like buying gold at WoW (usually do it via https://overgear.com/games/wow/gold).

I get more excited buying games than playing them :oops:

Gaming isn't like what it use to for me where I could spend hours playing. Now I get bored in like 15 minutes.

Unless a REALLY good game grabs my attention but the last game I actually played and beat was Aggelos :shock:
