Terraria demo is also up on the PSN as well. It was in the drop on the blog, but absent from the blog update post. I'm still playing the PC version, but I just need a Vita version to convince me to double dip.

Is there a reason Terraria isn't called Minecraft 2D?

Rainbow Moon is on sale for $9.99 so I'm probably finally buying it right after I finish playing Paper Mario.

Played Injustice as Wonder Woman and her floating really threw me off. Seems like every other 2 1/2 D fighter so I don't get the hype.

Honestly it feels like a clunky, unintuitive Mortal Kombat game. At least with MK, the game doesn't take itself too seriously but the way I've seen this one advertised, it seems to be pandering to the hardcore DC Fans. I admit, it can be fun in short bursts but it wasn't nearly as good as I thought it would be.
