I Think It's Time For Me To End PC Gaming...='(

It's a sad day. I feel ashamed. There are two reasons why I probably must stop PC gaming.
1 "I don't actually have a PC, I have a laptop"
2 "I just don't have enough money"

This problem arose when I bought Brink on PC and when I installed it, it came up with my card couldn't support OpenGL 3.1 . After contacting Sony and AMD and getting replies after asking whether I could replace it, they said, as the Sony man put it, "Laptop's die with the graphics they are built with".

I then asked a friend and he said he knew a guy who could replace it. I thought my problems were solved, but then I realised "I am going to have to go through this shit again and again" and started to wonder whether it was worth it. I don't have the money to buy updates for hardware every year or so.

The other reason I will probably change is because you may notice in an earlier blog, I said "After playing Total War : Shogun 2, I don't think I can get back to playing Age Of Empires II". Age Of Empires II is the game I grew up with. I would've put it up in my top 3 games ever...until about 5 days ago...

Ominious much?

Well, I found this copy of Age Of Empires II from a friend and loaded it up. My brain was actually about to explode with anticipation about visiting my childhood memories. If anyone remembers the game then I'm about to describe it

"William Wallace Campaign=EPIC"
"Joan Of Arc= ummmm...okayish"
"Saladin= This is kinda shit"
"Genghis Khan=Oh FFS"
"Barbarossa= I'm not playing this, it's primitive"

Now this may not be a big deall, I mean it's just one game right? But I started thinking about maybe my PC gaming experience should be left there, with my early childhood.

I really am torn at this moment.

Alright, let's try this again.

My name is Alex. I'm 15 and I hide in my dark corner of the internet writing a so-called "blog" here on Destructoid. I think far too critically of myself which has reflected on my personality, as I'm cyncical and highly critical of...well a lot of stuff.

Anyway, games. It was all about the GameBoy Advance when I was young, and have grown up on an unhealthly diet of portable gaming (GBA,DS,PSP), a recent introduction of console gaming , lots of fictional media, and yummy food.

I'm lazy and very day-dreamy, non-committal and kind of temperamental. Plus I get distracted easily...I'm really painting a rosy picture here aren't I? Still, if you stick around, (I'm hoping) you may find something of quality here, and who knows, I don't think I'm THAT bad, right...right?

So yeah, vidjo games.

Deus Ex Human Revolution
Batman Arkham City
Portal+Portal 2
Mafia II
Total War:Shogun 2
Rayman Advance
Pokemon Crystal
Jurassic Park:Operation Genesis
Super Mario 64
House Of Dead III

Also, I have twitter now, even though I now feel like a complete sell out. Follow me and see how uninteresting I can be.
