Nice brother!! I'm looking at getting the Zelda boxset too. I've been contemplating which console to get and I think I'm going to leave the PS4 for another year and just have some fun with the Wii U for the little gaming time I have

This managed to slip past the radar before Christmas, don't think I've seen it for sale in shops so could become collectible?

My brother is a massive gamer to so he likes helping me out lol! Im sticking with WiiU as my console choice and like you get a ps4 a few years down the line. I'm still in wait for a ps3 but just waiting for prices to fall more. Happy with my 360 but will never get an xbox1.

Sanddancer, Super Mario 3D World would be the best place to start, it is not without challenge but the hardest levels are saved for post-completion play. Super Luigi U is a much more difficult version of New Super Mario Bros. Wii U, so that would be the one to tackle last.

Hunter's Trophy 2: Europa

Got this today and I thought I should post about it here to make potential Wii U collectors aware of its existence. I had not heard of this game until I suddenly found copies of it on ebay.de. This is the second gun/rifle bundled game (along with Cocoto Magic Circus 2) that jumps up in my face and grab quite a few £ from my wallet on the way down. I just have to buy them straight away as I can't imagine they getting a large print and may become very hard to find in a couple of years.

Finally Super Mario 3D World was in stock again at my local GameStop. I've been hunting it since it was released... sold out everywhere. I didn't make that mistake with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Lucky for me as the clerk said that every single copy was pre-booked so no chance of getting it on a whim. Pre-booked my copy of Mario Kart 8 as well as I really need a copy of that day one.

Couple of questions for you seasoned veterans, would you expect the price of this to go down any further than it is? http://www.graingergames.co.uk/games/ni ... ll-edition

And also, has anyone purchased the Buccaneer Edition:

How big is it roughly in comparison to a standard Wii U case?

Here's a photo for your comparison. Included the Black Chest Edition as well. The price for collector's edition tend to drop a little for a year or two but then they normally go back to retail price or more, I think. I wouldn't hold my breath and hope to find them as a bargain, tough. My philosophy when it comes to collector's editions is: Buy them new or risk buying them more expensive (and perhaps incomplete) down the road.

Just picked up the Skylanders Giants pack from Asda at Home for £12 new, might be worth having a quick look if you've got a local Asda.

Glad you found one. I found a retailer in the UK so I think stocks are just low here.
