I got into the beta the first day they started inviting people. I had played LoL for about 3ish years before that and I felt the game was so clunky and confusing.

Within the first 10 minutes, of the first game, of the FIRST DAY I already had someone completely flip out and tell me to go die and that I was the worst ever and to just leave the game and blah blah blah.

...this was the first day of beta mind you... first day. I uninstalled it and have no interest in ever going back. LoL serves me just fine when I need a MOBA :/

You sir have no balls. You have never experienced any pointless internet rage in a game before?

I have no balls because I'd rather spend my time not being around crying stupid ass children? At least in LoL I know I'm good and I know how to play the game already.

There is nothing worse than trying to learn something and being yelled at the whole time. How does anyone expect a player to progress in they're being demeaned the whole time. Not to mention it was beta, day 1 of beta no less... the game isn't good enough to warrant putting up with that crap. (at least it wasn't when I played in beta)

EDIT: changed last sentence*

I had a guy flip out on me in my first public game of League of Legends, and it was even a co-op bot match. What is your point? From what I have played of LoL it is way worse in that category than DOTA 2, simply because you have to expend effort to get DOTA 2 (Either sign up for the beta and wait, or know someone who already has it, and you have to have a Steam account) while anyone can play LoL with minimal effort so by default DOTA 2 will have less "scum". One person flipping out at you shouldn't scare you away from a game, if anything you should just laugh at them for being so immature and then move on. 
 
My first placement match of Starcraft 2 I had the guy swear at me and call me terrible. Did that stop me from playing the game? No. I've been playing the game for over 2 years now. Don't let idiots get to you. You are better than that.

Only looking for XCOM DLC, AC3, and stuff for Mac/Linux (Yes I am in the Linux beta. I have played TF2 on Linux). I got everything new I was looking for last sale, which was XCOM and CS:GO. I have way too much stuff. I don't even know half the stuff I own now. I didn't know I owned Dragon Age: Origins.
 
Maybe FC3 if it is cheap enough I will get it.
 
The cheapest I have ever seen a new game go on sale for on Steam during this sale was SR3 at 50% off when it was around a month old. That game is among the best money I've spent on Steam.

I didn't used to. I am running out of space so I do now, but I keep everything easily accessible so I can get it if I feel like it. I went from having an Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, N64, SNES, and Genesis hooked up to just the Xbox and SNES.

Still amazing. I am actually still playing it since I put 20 gigs of visual mods into it a month ago. It is a fun game and now it looks absolutely stunning looking.

It runs smoother than on PS2 or Xbox, and it actually controls decently well for a touchscreen game. I think it is a better GTA game for phones than GTA3 because it is much easier. Some of those GTA3 missions were near impossible with touch controls. I've been playing it quite a bit and it seems quite good.

and I'm happy to say the Macbook "just works". Just don't expect to get any games on it, it's worthless for that.

Yup, the cliche of "It just works" is really the only way to describe it. They're dependable machines. I always opt for my Mac over my Windows machine when it comes to doing actual work. And the gaming situation is actually getting better. I myself have over 100 Mac Steam games and that doesn't even count all the GOG stuff I have (many have Mac installers now, and the Windows GOG installer works perfectly with WINE so almost anything on GOG is playable on Mac through WINE now. The App Store also is starting to get bigger games now like Borderlands 2).

"It just works" is the biggest myth about macs. It's on the level with, "you only use 10% of your brain" and, "alcohol kills brain cells" I just had to reset the pram or whatever the fuck on my mac because it was having problems. I royally fucked it up trying to install pro tools a month ago and had to reinstall the os.

For the extreme majority of users though, it is true. Sure there will be the extremely rare obscure issues like what you had but for most people that type of thing will not happen, especially since most people won't be installing $700+ massive pieces of software on their machines. The type of people using Airs aren't likely to run into those issues because they wouldn't be doing that intense of work on them anyway, and if they are expecting to they bought the wrong Mac. I've done lots of simulations with MATLAB on my Mac and never run into issues, even if some of them take like 5 minutes to complete. You just have to know the limits of your machine.

I really disliked the game. The open world looked good but it felt completely empty and soulless without any side quests.
@Leviticus128 said:

It was okay, i think the main gripe they all had with the game was that it was an open world game where you only had one mission so it was kind of pointless

The open world means nothing when it comes to Mafia games other than as a setting to tell the story in. The Mafia games are linear action games that just happen to be set in one giant area rather than a bunch of small areas. Anyone who has played Mafia (the original one) knows this. The city is there just to add to the atmosphere of the main story. The argument that it had no sidequests and that was a detractor simply does not work because there weren't supposed to be sidequests in the first place.
