Right. Look here.
I've been patient, and sadly, I check steam everyday but really I think I'm at the end of my tether. Where is the seven realms of bloody mordor/halflife parallel universes is DOTA2 for mac? I've watched games online I've checked to see if indeed it was built in the Source engine (it is!) and I've waited. I've waited and I've checked and I've waited.
But it's still 'not available on your platform', despite me having a beta key, and the means to set up my old PC to run the damn thing. I've got to a point of extreme stubbonness. I suppose I should be used to this by now, but hey, I guess I will never really learn. Valve move at the speed of frozen black pitch (google that it's fascinating).
Now, I know, I should have expected it, and I know I can install windows on my mac -I just don't want to for ONE game. It's such a waste of hard-disk space and my time. I know there are solutions to this and that I could work SOMETHING out with wine wrappers and such. Quite frankly I just can't be fucked.
I'm just excited enough about DOTA2 to care that I can't play it on my macbook (which is the most powerful PC-like thing I have), but not enough to: buy a new pc, put my old one back together since I moved, install windows on my mac or even contact valve directly.
The only thing I can be bothered to do is complain about it on the internet. Here on this blog I've not updated since a very disappointing Microsoft press conference of 2011. FAIL.
The weird thing I can't shake is that valve could be making money out of me, because at this point I'm actually desperate enough I'd buy a hat just to play it.
