Oh bollocks. There's only so much you can optimize by making your own OS/hardware. Third party applications will bloat the shit out of your computer.

They make this argument for their phones too, but you can't tell me an iPhone with 4GBs of RAM is equivalent to a 16 GB Samsung phone.


Were you running apps designed for different native environments? That might have been your problem. A MacOS app is not a Windows app, despite them having the same name and being made by the same company.

Try it for a longer period of time and then judge for yourself. I don't want to go into details of what/how they do it, I am also not competent enough to claim higher knowledge about it, but simply is better. We are as a company striving to replace all laptops long term with Macbook Pros, it makes so much difference.

Some apps suck for Mac OS, but most of what I used worked flawlessly. Office 2013 and 2015 had issues, nowadays it works like a charm.

Is it free for a couple of days, or it's permanently available to you if you download it now?

I might download it soon as well. Buy it later if needed, or just keep the saves and wait for cracked version :lol:

Denuvo DRM is the reason. That's why Football Manager games take a long time to crack, with last year being the exception. Denuvo DRM will check up on the server every once in a while to confirm you own the game. Shutting down the internet will probably just stop the game from working.

The client either automatically deletes it after the date, or deletes it when you try to start the game after the date. Been a while since I used steam with those free-weekend type of games.

You can always be a filthy pirate and acquire the game by alternative methods.

I just bought a game I was eyeing called Ancestors (Humankind Odyssey iirc). At the moment my laptop cannot tolerate this and I'm waiting for one I have in mind to become available (otherwise I'll order from System76 something).

Anyone played it?

Which campaigns do you prefer?

Which factions?

Off course the Romans. But I usually try and take a faction with some history to me personally. I played with Macedonia and Suebi. Macedonia because of Alexander the Great and the Suebi because they come closest to my ancestors.

Which factions do you prefer?

If we talking about campaigns I liked Caesar in Gaul and Imperator Augustus a lot. Rise of the Republic was the last campaign I played and although it was fun to see all the old factions the campaign itself very much sucked.
