Figures that soon as I find some more cool games to play my gaming laptop dies
And now a brief timeline of Mr. McFrakken's lifetime:
-Mr McFrakken is born somewhere in a seedy corner of China and is shipped to America to find a slightly better life.
-Some guy buys it from Best Buy for $2000 when new and does all sorts of horrible bothersome things to it for a few years.
-Guy posts it for sale on Craigslist and I'm looking for this particular model, it's a match made in hell
-Guy comes over in new Camaro to drop off laptop, it's an older model than he advertised. And it's more fucked up than he advertised. Turns out he's kind of an idiot. I'm an idiot for still buying because I needed a laptop. Mr. McFrakken is MINE.
-Spruced up Mr. McFrakken with all sorts of programs and gizmos, he's never felt better, that scar in the lower corner of the screen is mega manly.
-A year later a hard drive starts to fail, no worries, he's still chugging along!
-Soon after, the DC power jack starts to loosen, have to jiggle the power cord to get it to charge properly. Battery begins holding less and less charge. No problem, I'll just leave it plugged in most of the time!
-Mr. McFrakken starts overheating despite frequent cleanings and air cooler, fans and hard drive get noisier, occasional glitches when using him pop up. Still going though, he'll never die!
-Forward to the present, I forget to clean McFrakken for a month. I update the graphics card drivers, now he has amazing new gaming quality! I test Mr. McFrakken's newfound powers, then at the peak of enjoyment he shuts down completely. I try to turn him back on but he only lights up for a second and shuts down again no matter how many times I press his power button.
-Run the gamut of tests to see what's wrong; change the CMOS battery, check for wiggling DC jack, inspect for noticeably burnt-out components, remove the giant clump of dust completely blocking one of the cooling tubes... oops.
-Nothing works, Mr McFrakken's motherboard must be damaged, he's dead.
And repairing him will cost as much as a new laptop
Now I'm stuck on the nice PC but with no graphics card. FML!
Moral of the story: Runic waited too long to release TL2! HOW I PLAY NOW!?
