It looks like my laptop actually can run the game. The only place the game took a chug, was the Flying Battery Boss and only one time. So it looks like my graphics card is pretty lucky being a cheap Asus laptop with well over 6 year old parts. Only thing new in the laptop is Windows 10 64bit, and Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Even the system said it couldn't run Windows 10 when I installed it, but it does!

Yes, the people downvoting you are probably trolling. You can run it on max at 4K probably.
