(Unless i am crazy) I cannot find a way for our characters to look behind without turning them completely around (and exposing our fleshy backs to doom). I think it would go a long way to increase our situational awareness if we could bind a key to turn our heads backwards (if not 180, at least 120-160, i know we are not owls ) while our body/shield/weapons remain forward for defensive measures.
For example: When fighting bosses, i occasionally find myself constantly backing up and eventually getting stuck in a corner (to my imminent demise). Being able to look backwards occasionally would allow us to look behind and get an idea of where we are (and what enemies are sneaking up behind us). I cannot understate how many times i get stabbed in the butt because i was facing a horde, shield out, and couldn’t turn my head to check my surroundings.
I am open to ideas/feedback of course, its just an idea (and maybe it is in the game and i’m just an idiot) but if not, i think it would be an AMAZING upgrade to an amazing game
