Mike Palermo writes: As the game says, 'Rock is hard, but Rochard is harder'. Something made very clear when his mining ship is overtaken by Space Pirates. You see, everyone aboard the SkyRig ship is about to get fired, since they haven't been meeting their quota for the past few years. And just when they stumble upon the mother-load, their ship gets overtaken and it's up to the blue-collard John Rochard to save the ship and her crew. Seriously, though, the story isn't what will keep your hands on the controller, it's the gameplay.
