I heard you like Stronghold, on sale this weekend on Gog.com

Stronghold is $3.59 on gog.com this weekend, Crusader is $5.99.
 
Also, unrelated, Arx Fatalis is $3.59 as well, and well worth every iteration of 9 to the second decimal point.
 
I dunno what that means.  But it's pretty awesome if you like a hardcore dungeon crawler.

Yeah, though the steam package is more appealing since it has all stronghold games, it's 20 bucks tough, so I'm waiting a bit to see if it goes on sale, I'm particularly interested in Crusader Extreme that has crazy battles with over 10K units at once.

Its also on amazon.com for 13 bucks - has all the games too 
 
You'd probably have to find patches for it too.

Nice thing about the GOG version is that they go in and tool around a bit to guarantee compatibility across Windows Vista/Windows 7, and their games usually come with a god selection of extra goodies.  With Stronghold, I got the manual, the soundtrack, some HD wallpapers, and a couple of nice little campaign add-ons.   Plus, no DRM, no disc to pop in, and no 3rd party client to run ( I love Steam, but usually when it comes to old games, I don't want to have to require internet access or mess around with Steam's offline mode to play them).
 
Personally, I think GOG is unbeatable when it comes to older games like this.

It works beautifully on my Windows 7 64 bit version too~~~
