    [–] What 'common' car do you hate the most? laurenceriley87 0 points ago in cars

    I saw a new one of these only yesterday and thought "hey look a GT-86.....huh...is that a Subaru badge?"

    [–] Cyberpunk 2077 - Detailed Description of the 50 Minute Closed-Doors Demo laurenceriley87 0 points ago in Games

    This is forum, you discuss topics. If you don't want your preferences discussed and disagreed with don't post. I'm saying its a waste of time simply because you clearly have no interest in playing this game, so why post in the first place. Surely people want to talk to other people who want to play the game, not those who don't.

    [–] Always thought I had quite boring brown eyes til I took a closer look. Opinions? laurenceriley87 1 points ago in eyes

    Been doing some research but now a bit confused. I originally thought my eyes were brown. When I looked closer I thought maybe they are hazel. But I have just read about central heterochromia, and that the outer part of your iris is your true eye colour. And also that being two colours doesn't make them hazel. Hmm :/ so which is it? Brown, hazel, green? Heterochromia? Or none of the above?

    [–] Always thought I had quite boring brown eyes til I took a closer look. Opinions? laurenceriley87 2 points ago in eyes

    Ok makes sense. I wasn't sure if the brown round the iris and that greeny colour on the outside counted as separate colours, hence my confusion. But I'll take Hazel as an answer, thanks.

    So called 'first person' games? They aren't "so called" anything. They are literally in first person perspective.

    The customisation goes beyond the look of the character, it affects gameplay and story so they might as well let us change the way the character too . Plus you see the character in cut scenes so isn't completely wasted.

    [–] View from top of Mt everest laurenceriley87 6 points ago in BeAmazed

    If it is the highest point on earth, then wouldn't it stand to reason that with a good enough telescope you would be able to see the edge of the earth? Surely, only an object taller would obscure your view.

    [–] First Person Perspective and Third Person Perspective Megathread laurenceriley87 6 points ago in cyberpunkgame

    I think I would probably agree on the immersiveness of fpp. I always felt tpp is more like watching an interactive movie. You can become massively invested in the story and have a deep connection to the character but I think that's because you can relate to character more as you can see them, which isnt the same as immersion.

    If you want to feel like you are the character, then I am inclined to agree that fpp is the way to go.

    [–] Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Jose Pedraza laurenceriley87 4 points ago in Boxing

    I agree that he did fight well and I had him winning maybe 3 rounds. But the commentators had the fight almost even going into round 10, when it just wasn't.

    They kept saying Loma's shots were having no effect on Pedraza, and I agree he isn't a big hitter, but plenty of shots were moving his head whereas I never saw Loma's shape broken once.

    Didn't seem like good commentary to me if aren't seeing the obvious things like which fighters hits are having the most effect on their shape.

    [–] Giulia RWD vs AWD laurenceriley87 2 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    Ha yeah I probably do, but I'm the kinda guy who tries to drive a 280hp RWD Alfa in 6 inches of snow with no LSD and summer tires 🤣 I didn't get far!

    [–] Giulia RWD vs AWD laurenceriley87 2 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    Am I right in thinking that the limp home mode is more of an issue with AWD than RWD? To do with the complex array of sensors needed to keep the power going to the right places.

    I have not got the LSD and in the dry I get quite a lot off lag pulling out of junctions due to the TC but the nannies don't kick in too much once the car is on the move, just enough to not let the tail kick right out (unless its me doing that, in my dreams maybe!). I suppose that makes sense with the open differential not gaining the grip it could with the LSD but allowing it to slide easier once going.

    [–] Giulia RWD vs AWD laurenceriley87 2 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    I would agree that the RWD is easy enough to control when the back end slides around but i had real problems getting going at all on summer tires in the snow last year. If snow is an issue at all where you live I think winter tires are a must. I've heard the AWD handles snow well regardless.

    On another note, I live in UK too and rain does make the back end a bit lively but the nannies will keep you on the road. Still allows you to have a bit of fun with it though.

    [–] Have any of you Giulia owners experience this? Low fuel, two bars and range being unreliable as heck laurenceriley87 1 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    Yeah, although these stories of the fuel pump overheating or the car not starting because there is too little fuel in the tank scare me a little! Think I'm going to have to start filling up more often.

    That probably makes sense to keep it feeling like an Alfa! Especially considering these cars don't really have that many Italian parts on them. Just expertly put together in a distinctly Italian way 🤣

    [–] Have any of you Giulia owners experience this? Low fuel, two bars and range being unreliable as heck laurenceriley87 3 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    I have heard this a lot and have experienced it myself from day one too. 280hp 2017 model too. Something I've noticed is that I never have between 45 miles or zero miles range left. One second it 45 miles, then none. Makes no sense, but it doesn't really bother me that much as I love everything about this car. Alfas have to have weird annoying quirks do they not?

    [–] NG need help cutting off seaths tail laurenceriley87 1 points ago in DarkSoulsHelp

    Stand in front him until he begins his attack animation. Then sprint round his left side (run right) and get one or two hits on the tip of his tail, then move away before he uses his tail to squish you.

    If you don't hit this furthest half of his tail it won't work. It should only take 2 to 4 hits two handing a greatsword. I used Black Knight Sword. I've heard the vertical slash makes it easier to hit but I can't see it making that Mich difference.

    Apparently, there is also a trick where you can get him to destroy the crystal himself with his crystal breath which should give you enough time to get the sword while he is staggered and recovering but never tried it.

    Good luck.

    [–] What 'common' car do you hate the most? laurenceriley87 1 points ago in cars

    No I'm in the UK. Full of German cars here.

    [–] What 'common' car do you hate the most? laurenceriley87 1 points ago in cars

    Well you'd better believe it ha. I'd seen maybe five or so GT86s around but never a BRZ. Had to look it up.
