    It'll probably be slow and choppy. Try it out and let us know how it goes. It should work in theory.

    I tried it out with my base model 2012 base model 13" with the 8GB ram upgrade. I ran Arkham Asylum through Parallels and Windows 8. It was okay, there was a bit of lag in scenes with a lot of detail, but it was playable.
    I also feel like those issues were a result of Windows 8 compatibility, and not just mba hardware itself, so I'd say yeah you can do some light gaming through Parallels on low settings. But I wouldn't count on being able to run Borderlands 2 flawlessly.
