I'm finding Mass Effect Andromeda to be a real bore after 15-20 hours. The side quests all suck, the loot sucks, the load times suck. The action is fine.

The lore is good, but the dialog is terrible. There's no option to play a more serious, scientific, rational Ryder. The dialog wheels are just different ways to say the same thing. No renegade options. The characters speak like teenagers, and they're meant to be the best and brightest colonists the Milky Way has to offer? Sheesh. I'd like to blame the MCU for the dumbing down of nerd shit across the board. Everyone needs to be a snappy fucking Iron Man cracking jokes while a planet explodes

Yeah, that's about how far I got. Played it for a few hours "hey, this isn't so bad", got about 15 hours in and :zzz

the vibe is shitty EA BIG style but Dirt5 has some of the best ice racing I have ever played.

I wouldnt bother even if it was there. As others have said its much lesser/buggier/crappier/unfinished beta version of these newer open world games like AssCreed. Apparently Bioware bled a lot of talent during the 10's hence Andromeda, Anthem

You know, after the PS5 version of Dirt was killed 2 weeks after release when they added vsync which broke the game causing random frame drops to 15-20fps from 60 at spots every race I was ready to check it out on PC at unlocked fps on a 165hz gsync monitor.

Tried it out and...definitely smoother, but even on max everything the PC graphics look...shitty? Dynamic res is off but everything in the distance looks really low res. I feel like the PS5 version looks way better and sharper.

And honestly coming from the Dual Sense it's pretty jarring. Oh well.

I read the latest PS5 patch this week reduced the slowdown drops a lot, though they are still there. Will probably give the PS5 version another spin over the weekend to compare.

Game is an alright arcade racer. It's not great, but it's not bad outside certain event types that control like dogshit. Reminds me of Sega Rally Reboot but not as good.
