I play both, I haven't touched them in a while though for other reasons.
Usually when I play games though I use the handle, "Flex McNasty".
So look for that with or without the space in-between the two.
DOTA 2 you'll have to get through STEAM, but it's free to play. So if you've got STEAM look for Flex McNasty through that instead of the DOTA 2 client.

osu! is a music and rhythm based game where you have to try and hit the circles that appear on the scream in beat to the music.
There are two key parts to this game: The cursor and the keyboard.
The cursor: A mouse, tablet, touchscreen, etc. You have to move your cursor over the circle as it appears, and it has to be accurate. Idk how much else to go about it. It's pretty simple. This aspect is called aim.
Keyboard: This can be pretty complicated I guess. There are two keys: X and Z. You have to hit these over the circles. Let me go into detail about the circles while I'm at it. There are approach rings that slowly close in around the circle. Right when those rings finish closing in is when you hit one of the keys (with your cursor over it). Right when that ring closes in is when you hit it with the beat (or to the rhythm). Players typically only use one of the keys, occasionally alternating quickly when the circles are appearing too fast for one finger (aka single tapping). How you tap really all depends on personal preference. Some players like to mainly single tap, only alternating when they have to (this is my preference, and I prefer to single tap with my pointer finger, or the X key). Others prefer to constantly alternate between X and Z, going back and forth to each note. Some even have a bit of a mixture where they single tap sometimes and alternate other times. Again, it all comes down to preference.

Now circles aren't the only thing. There are also slider, return sliders, and spinners. For spinner, it's pretty self explanatory. You hold down a key and spin your cursor around in circles. Sliders, you have to hold down the key and drag your cursor along with the slider. Return sliders are the same thing, only they have an arrow at the end, meaning you have to also bring the cursor back to the start of the slider, still holding down the key.

Osu! isn't a super heavy fps demanding game, so anything above 120 should work okay, but that's still kind of laggy. You probably won't experience much to any lag at 160-200 fps.

A little bit about how I play:
I have a slow, low fps computer, for the most part. I used to play with between 60-130 fps, but for the past few months it's risen to a higher rate of about 120-160. My equipment? An old keyboard with a little input lag, and a tiny wireless mouse that's about 2 years old and dying on me. Basically, I"m a good example of how crap equipment doesn"t equal crap performance (although my plays aren"t usually 100% golden SS).
In terms of skill, I"m okay I guess. Out of around 6mil registered users, I"m ranked in the top 91k in the world. The hardest beat map I"ve successfully passed is ranked around the higher end of 5 stars (although I"ve come close to passing a 6 star or two). To give a comparison, the hardest star rating beat maps that have been passed include very very few 9 star songs (that were for the most part passed by a whim). The hardest songs top players can usually full combo (not miss any or break your combo during the song) are around 7 stars, with one full combo on an 8 star song (Axarious hype). The hardest song I've ever full combo'd was around 4 stars. So yeah, not too bad I guess.
I"ve been playing for a little over a year, and I"d say it"s a fun game. If you wish, I can include some links to video replays of people playing some maps.
