3DS Board! Help me decide on my post Christmas Amazon spendings!

Please.

I've got a lot of gift cards accumulated on Amazon from the past year and like last year I'm planning on spending them before heading back to school. Since most of the games I'm considering are on Nintendo handhelds I figure this is the bet place to ask. I'd just like an opinion on what the best deals are.

1 of the following 3DS games:
Etrian Odyssey Untold - 34.78
Enjoyed the 4th game and the demo

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon - 22.82 used
Never played the first, but this game caught my interest

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team - 28.49
Enjoyed the first two, but not the third

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers - 25.99 used
Liked SMTIV, but I'm not sure if I can handle another SMT so soon, the last one burnt me out

Super Mario 3D Land - 27.98 used
Can't go wrong with Mario platformers




1 or 2 of the following games on other handhelds:
Castlevania Portrait of Ruin - 19.98
Castlevania Order of Ecclesia - 19.99 used
Castlevania Harmony of Dissonance - 16.24 used
Castlevania Circle of the moon - 9.98 used
Castlevania Dracula X - 11.26 used

Dawn of Sorrow and Aria of Sorrow were decent enough, been looking to play more of the series, keep in mind that Dracula X has Symphony of the Night as a bonus

Mega Man ZX Advent - 27.92
Been a while since I played the first one, but I been playing the other subseries recently and want to finish my Mega Man Collection

Metroid Zero Mission - 22.98 used
Metroid Fusion - 18.97 used

I love Metroid, are these worth their prices?

Thanks to anyone who actually reads this...

Anything I erased, I recommend to ignore. As a Metroid fan both those games are really fun but can be beaten in less than an hour. Metroid Fusion was the game I started with so I can say how much I enjoy it even throughout these years more than Zero Mission. Though the ending of Zero Mission is hilarious in a childish sort of way.

Luigi's Mansion is a buy along with EO4 (I don't like EO but if you like it buy it) but I can't recommend Mario 3D Land at the price its at. While I did enjoy DT's demo, you may or may not like the annoying constant hand holding the game does for you.

If you did not like the 3rd series of the Mario and Luigi rpg's, don't get Dream Team! I would get Luigi's Mansion as I liked the first. Etrian Odyssey Untold is a good choice since you said you enjoyed EOIV. Get Megaman ZX.

Thanks for all the advice so far. I really like the cheap eShop prices, but I'm a guy who likes his physical copies, though I'm not opposed to getting something if it's digital only (Ace Attorney). Right now I'm leaning towards Etrian Odyssey, Luigi's Manison, maybe Mega Man ZX Advent, and one of the Metroid games. But I'm not placing my order tonight so I'll wait and see if anyone has anything else to say through tomorrow.

ZX Advent was a huge disappointment, in my opinion. I'd say skip it.
