Vector 36 and More Free This Weekend

Vector 36 is holding a free weekend on Steam, offering a couple of days to get acquainted with this hover-racing game gratis (thanks SteamDB via Ant). Here's a refresher on the crowded roster of current free offers: There are three games/DLC that are free to keep if you pick them up in time, the new Borderlands 2 DLC, Polgoneer, and Enter the Gungeon. And there are four other games which are free to check out temporarily, Fallout 76, The Division 2, Hunt: Showdown, and for a bit longer, Roller Champions. There's also a free week-long trial of EA Origin Basic. Here's a description of Vector 36:

Vector 36 is Physics-Based Racer set on the terraformed surface of Mars. You pilot a Skimmer, a completely customizable, surface skimming vehicle. With total control over every component, you are responsible for how your Skimmer performs. Piloting skill and engineering make the difference between winning and losing.

Race other pilots through various tracks on Mars. Compete in Sprint, Circuit, or Tournament modes to win credits, parts, or new Skimmers. Race your friends through Vector 36's amazing ghost replay system. Take on the world with Global Leaderboards. Push your machine to the limits until you are the fastest settler on Mars.

Turns out there's a bug with the Odyssey HMD and Vector 36. It's playable, but looks weird.

I played some Battlefield V single player as part of the Origin free trial.

I'm not impressed so far. Even the visuals with RTX ultra aren't all that impressive because the performance is complete dogshit (RTX 2080Ti) and because of visual bugs aplenty like flickering and transparent rock textures.
I have also never been a fan of the Frostshite engine because it always has this glossy, plastic-y look, especially on rocky surfaces. Same here in BF V. It just looks very unrealistic.

And the gameplay is pretty boring so far. The game encourages stealth in the first missions but the level design and the mechanics aren't really made for it. The levels are also too large to sneak slowly over hundreds of meters only to be caught (no quick save so you are always reset to the last checkpoint) and then being forced to replay long boring sneak slogs.

Oh well, it was nice as a demo for RTX but I'm not even sure I will finish the single player in the next seven days. It's too unremarkable and there is way too much other good stuff to play out there that I'd rather spend time on.
