Definitely a great moment, but still not as good as SSTH when Pierce had to sing on stage. That had me literally ROFL.

A few times to desktop, one time it rebooted my machine and it lost my overclock and couldn't read 6GB of my 12GB ram, I had to manually reinstall them!!!
Strangely though, I've left the CPU at stock since then and it seems to run smoother and more stable.
The whole "unplayable" notion is a bit hyperbolic, but I totally get the sentiment. I've always been a console guy but have found gaming on my PC infinitely more enjoyable in the last 2-3 years, so much so I ended up building a new machine and unplugging my consoles for good.
The real turning point for me was Skyrim.
I originally bought it for the 360 as it was my go to platform. I played it for 20 hours and really struggled with it. It wasn't until I haphazardly bought it on my PC on a steam sale that I felt like I was actually playing the game. It wasn't just the graphics (even though the boost in fidelity was significant), but the load times. Instead of walking into a room and waiting for what seemed like 20 seconds, on PC it was almost instant. This changed the game for me and made Skyrim a pure unadulterated pleasure.
I get why it pisses people off when a PC guy is all like "f*** dem consoles", but to be honest, f*** dem consoles. The imminent next gen is the first gen where I don't buy anything, as oppose to everything.
Well, all that matters is you enjoy your time with it, regardless of the game.
Though I only tend to reply arcade style games that are mainly mechanics based, like puzzles, fighters and shumups. I find it really hard to go through massive narrative based games that demand a lot of time, I just get bored half way through.
This generation I've probably replayed geometry wars and l4d more than anything else.
Despite not being able to walk around I still think P3P is the best version, the fast travel makes it so much snappier, and being able to control everyone in battle is nothing short of a god send.
I also think the Persona format is just very well suited to a hand held, playing in short burst is much more enjoyable for me.
or am I just expecting too much too early?
That one. All the big things are being held for E3, and getting a vita now is pretty much buying stake into the months to come. At least it wasn't the 3ds, where people bought it and waited almost a year for notable things to come out. I like mine right now because lumines, motorstorm RC, and wipeout are all keeping my time until MK9 comes out. then after that, Littlebigplanet and burning skies.
I guess I am being a little impatient, it's mostly down to the fact that there is just nothing in the near future pipeline that remotely interests me, aside from gravity rush and P4 Golden.
I'm really enjoying my Vita too, first time I've been this into a handheld since the NGPC to be honest. But that's mainly down to all the great PSP jrpgs I missed out on and not the Vita games themselves.
My personal preference for handheld games have always been slow burners that I can play in bursts over a long period of time, such as P3P and FF Tactics. I have very little interest in action oriented games on handhelds because I just feel gimped by the controls. I mean, it just seems silly to play a game like UMvC on the Vita instead of on a big screen with a stick. Same goes for stuff like Uncharted and Ninja Gaiden.
SNK, I hereby beg you, please bring back card-fighters-clash on the Vita...
