The only game you left out is Gears of War, are you not a fan?

whoops. i totally missed Gears there. o-o; 
Gears is fine. i think the MP is cool, but i don't think it's for me. i can barely finish the first Gears of War.

I've only played Gears of War 3 there, but that's a great game on it's own so you should have alot of fun with that - a great end to the trilogy. Can't really say anything for the others other than Super Mario 3D Land and Rayman Origins look like a lot of fun. So off that basis, some pretty good games there!

Fair enough! I really enjoyed the multiplayer in the first two so I can see myself loving GoW 3.

Limited collector's edition. So limited that it's available months after release, I wonder if that will always just be a marketing term from now on.

I really hated Gears of War 3, I wanted to like it, but it just didn't happen. I was done with that series after the first game I think, it's so boring.

Do you get anything special out all those collector/special editions? Also, I thought EB was bought out by Gamestop? Did they just not change the name for countries outside of the US?

@NekuSakuraba: I have yet to complete the GoW3 campaign. Although I've found a lot of value in the Horde mode - that's where most of my time is spent with that particular title. The gameplay feels tight and fluid which makes the game mode a lot of fun. Even if you don't enjoy the campaign (which will be hard to believe, considering all its praise) you will surely have a great time with horde and multiplayer.

I'd say that's a pretty damn good list of games.

Well, here is what you get -

Mario Kart 7 Power-Up Edition - Nintendo 3DS - A Mario hat.

Rayman Origins Limited Edition - PlayStation 3 - Didn't have any details but I assume it meant this. (Australia sometimes gets the European limited editions)

Super Mario 3D Land + Stylus Spartan Bundle - Nintendo 3DS - A few different colour stylus.

Gears of War 3 Limited Collector's Edition - Xbox 360 - This.

I enjoyed the campaign in the first 2 games, I just never finished them because I was too busy with horde mode and multiplayer.

The only one I'm especially fond of is Rayman. Thank you for buying that. Also, I haven't played the new Mario Kart.

Nice pick ups.
