At the risk of just re-writing half of those names out again, my recommendations are: Rayman Origins, Portal 2, Bully, Monaco, Civilization V, and Awesomenauts. All of these games together for under $35 -- what a ridiculous notion. If you aren't already training to wait for deals like these, it shouldn't take much more to get you to that point.
