13. Re: New Evochron Mercenary Jan 19, 2013, 00:59 jimnms
Although I bought it on sale last year, I didn't start playing it until recently. It does have a story and a goal, I guess ItBurn didn't pay attention to the message at the start of the game instructing you to go to a certain planet and accept a specific job to begin the story.

You can ignore the story and do your own thing, which is what I did at first. When I tried to use the jump drive and go to the planet, it said my jump drive wasn't capable of making the jump. I didn't realize you could set the auto pilot and it would plot a course making several jumps (or do it yourself manually), and there was a jump gate near by that took you closer.

I thought I needed to upgrade first, so I hung around the starting star system doing odd jobs to upgrade my ship. I finally started the story missions, which so far are basically tutorial type missions that I'd already done. I was having fun I got to the combat part of the story missions.

I guess the missions scale to your rank or something because I constantly get my ass kicked. I looked in the forums and found a link to some tutorial videos, and when the guy gets to the mission I'm on, he only has to take out two weak ass ships. When I get it, it will be either 3 or 4 tougher ships. The closest I got was when it was 3 ships. I managed to take out two, but had to use my jump drive go get out. My hull was damaged, and there happened to be a station nearby. I docked, repaired and went back to the location where the ships were, but the last ship was no where to be found.

I went in the game intending to play as a mercenary, doing whatever to make money, but not primarily a fighter.
