Dungeon Keeper 1&2, Theme Hospital, Magic Carpet, 3 Populous games, and Syndicate 75% off!

Hey kids! Do you know what time it is? (No, please twell us uncle G-Doc!) It's time to start the holiday sales on GOG.com! (Yaaaay!!!). Yes, that's right. This time of year GOG.com rolls out the big promo guns. This time we begin with a great bundle of Bullfrog Favorites, that you can get with an amazing 75% discount! Let's take a quick look at the content of the first GOG.com holiday promo package, shall we?

You can learn how good it feels to be bad in Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2. You can cure such diseases as transparency and broken wind in Theme Hospital. You can glide the Arabian skies on your Magic Carpet. You can become a god-like being and lead your followers to glory in Populous, Populous 2: Trials of the Olympian Gods, and Populous: The Beginning. Finally you will dominate the future as the head of your Syndicate. Normally, to do all that you'd have to pay nearly $50. But for the next 24 hours that whole bundle of games can be yours for only $11.92!

That's not all, of course. You just saved over $35. There must be something cool you can do with it, right? As you browse through our catalog, you will notice that almost all of the games we offer have been discounted by 50% for the holiday season. That's no mistake! We really took our sharpest scissors to those prices, so you can enjoy literally hundreds of excellent games for half the regular price.

Enjoy our offers, grab the Bullfrog Favorites bundle for only $11.92, and fill your home with holiday gaming cheer! Happy holidays!
How many holiday promo days will you do? I don't know if I should buy games now or wait for another pack of deals.
WOW! Today my favorite developer is in GOG's first day of holiday promo, and I got one of my all time favorite games for free! Thank you!
Can a bluetext care to explain why the promo on the first page is saying that I own part of the bundle, even though I have bought all the games I didn't have when the sale started? However, I have to admit that it's nice seeing it say I can complete it for FREE.
Bullfrog Favourites: You own part of this bundle, complete it for free.

Is anyone else getting this?

Edit: how did we time this de_Monteynard? :)

Seems like a bug, we'll fix it shortly.
Very nice artwork on the promo page....

Yeah, me too. My theory is, if you're missing only a game or two from owning a complete bundle, they just gift it to you. That's nice.

mondo84: Maybe another one will be a tiered pricing structure, where adding games increases the % off?
This!, really dont care for bundles where i have to buy games i do not want on my shelf just to get a higher % off. No sales today.
Also, like other people have been complaining, it's hard to know what I have when I can only see it once I have already clicked on the link.

Though I assumed this was to help the website handle all the added holiday traffic, it would be nice to know what else I should get.

Edit: Just noticed GOG put up Owned vs. Not Owned. Sweet!

Nice to see some variety in the sale structure. That'll make every single day of the next few weeks very exciting for me.
Roelibex, i dont understand how you find 75% off a small but great bundle of games not being a deal. These games are DRM free afterall, and in the future it will pay off what you spend on them now ten-fold. I personally think these 75% off GOG deals are a steal. Thx GOG.

Well, I guess I'll hold out on a number of the titles on my wishlist and see what the daily deals bring in the coming weeks but, fuck me, what a great sale. My wallet will be taking a brutal beating.
