The OP is fully updated for the impatient.

Has anyone played ---

Hyperballoid HD - $2.99
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes - $19.99

Hyperballoid HD is a boring Arkanoid clone that doesn't even have online leaderboards, so there's no replay value. Get Magic Orbz instead if you want an Arkanoid clone that is really good.

Can someone confirm that the 2.10 update still limits you to 100 apps for the entire system? This makes no sense, I'm holding on to the slim chance that they meant 100 per page with the folders.

Create folders to more easily manage your favorite application icons on the home screen, with up to 10 icons in each folder and a maximum of 100 on the home screen (including icons inside the folders).

I'm hearing the 100 app limit is still in place. Also, the card icon that shows which game is in your Vita is to the left of the clock, though it's REALLY hard to see that it's just the artwork on the game card. Edit: Yeah, what the two above me said.

Also, to create a folder, press any area on the main menu for it to allow you to re-arrange games, then press the "..." button next to a game, then "Create Folder". You can fit 10 apps in a folder & rename it. While 10 seems limiting (guess since that's how many can fit on screen, that's how much they could work with), it's nice that I can fit all my PSP games, PSN downloads, & the misc. stuff like friends, maps, browser, etc. into their own separate folders, making the main menu much more clean & going down from 4 screens to just two.

Well, at least we have the ability to save icon locations when we swap cards, makes things much easier for us.

There's a demo for Page Chronica, but I wouldn't even recommend trying it. You can skip it at this price.

Really liking this Vita update, probably one of the best so far. Finally some organization! Btw does your icons save automatically or is there somewhere you have to tell it to save. Also double tapping an icon in edit mode will also bring up the create folder, delete, etc menu.

I have not played Amy and I have yet to see a fellow cags post that he/she liked that game. Its like its not even a debate that the game is really really bad. With that said... Its $2 very cheap tho it could def get cheaper(doubt sony will embarrass themselves by offering this for free to + folks lol). If i ever have that much left after getting a $20 card this weekend I will buy this game just to witness a trainwreck of a game. Like I know before coming into this game its horrible, but how horrible can it get? I would like to know:D.

Finally a vita folders update. Its been a long time coming.:)

What im playing: 
|  :ps3: Dark Souls II :pray:   |  :vita: Spenlunky |

Recently completed:
- Grand Theft Auto V ( Great game, one of the best this gen )
The Last of Us  ( incredible game. gets the "Most honest and appropriate ending ever" award and goty )

its pretty good if you didn't get borderlands 1 from ps+ already. OR if you'd just like to own it for a buck with the second game.

Sorry, I know this is off topic, but I just updated my Vita for the first time since it joined plus, is there a setting I need to change to auto-upload game saves or does it just happen?

In the Setting section, check under the "Playstation Network" button, then to "Automatic Update Setting" and check the stuff you want.

You have to set it up through the Content Manager app.

Online Storage > Vita to Online Storage

Click the "i" button to set each game to automatically upload saves for you and then it'll upload them later on while the system is sleeping. Or if you want to do it right then, just click select all and upload them manually. Card saves can also be uploaded as long as you have the card in the slot at that time.

Then go to the Settings app. PlayStation Network > Automatic Update Settings > Upload Saved Data to Online Storage

Sorry if this is a bit off topic but to all the people who own the Playstation Card from Capital One, do you actually use the card? I know a lot of people signed up for one a while back to take advantage of the year of PS+ and $50 PSN gift card, but is it actually a good rewards card if you make many PSN purchases? Do your points build up fast and are the rewards any good? Plenty of people probably just leave it sitting there since there's no fees

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

10X points on all PlayStation®Network purchases

3X points on all PlayStation® and Sony® purchases at Sony stores, Sony.com and authorized retailers*

3X points at quick service restaurants, movie theaters and on your mobile phone bill

1X points on all other purchases

The points will build up exactly based on how much you spend. You can browse all the rewards right here. I've only ever looked at games and PSN cards there, they're usually priced at a penny per point (as in a $20 PSN card is 2000 points). I leave the card on my PSN account, but I haven't actually funded from that account in months since usually I use BB Reward Zone certs or other gift cards to buy PSN card.

This discussion has popped up here before I think. I personally don't use my Playstation Card at all, I much prefer a cash back card. You can make cash go farther than Sony Rewards points.

Tempted to re-buy Jeanne D'Arc which I never finished on PSP, but I seem to remember it being extremely difficult. Enemies spawning on top of you, turn count limits, restrictions like "no one is allowed to die". Not sure if I'm willing to try again at $15.

Can't wait to pick up Guacamelee with my $20 of incoming PSN credit :D

It isn't that hard. You just have to learn to use the rock paper scissors combat and attack enemies with the proper type of units.
