Finding the game far too hard.
I'm not one of these people who gets more motivation to stick at a game just because its hard. I, like most I would imagine, want to enjoy a game right from the start before it starts getting tough. I've been looking forward to Everspace as I invested in a couple of other space sim games, and not found them particularly gripping in their appeal. However, Everspace looked amazing in the previews and seemed to offer gameplay that didn't require investment in a HOTAS or fiddle about with mouse controls for hours. So, I invested, and have found myself frustrated and annoyed and begrudgingly keep giving it a go because I want to see if I'm simply being a retard or whether it's just the game. Personally, my retardness aside, I find the game far too hard. I've died like 12 times in an hour and since you're left COMPLETELY back to square one with resources etc., what enjoyment I do get from the game (fluidity of the movement, awesome graphics, excellent visuals and effects) is ruined by the fact I keep dying over and over and have yet to get past sector 2! Why set a man back to square one?? It doesn't make me want to keep playing I'm afraid. I want to be able to fly around for a while before I'm threatened by drones or whatever. Let a man relax! It's space, and the visuals are amazing! Why make it a cover-your--BEEP--as-quick-as-you-can fest. I realise whatever credits I manage to accrue during the brief time I stay alive can be used to invest in making the ship more badass, but finding credits isn't easy and running away from getting your -BEEP- blown to bits is not much fun for long. Create an 'easy' level for retards like me please.
