Fullscreen Application Resolution Preferences

Hey all,

I recently downloaded Empire at War for my Retina MBP, a fullscreen game. It launched well and I was experimenting with the different screen resolutions to see what would work best when one option led to the game zooming into the corner. I can only see about 1/8th of what should be the viewable area. The menu is cropped off the screen so I can't change the resolution back.

Every time I launch, it immediately goes to this view.

I've tried uninstalling and deleting the application .plist in /Preferences. Are application resolution settings stored elsewhere? How is my Mac remembering what the resolution was even after I've erased every trace of this app from my computer?!
