Hi there, i brought the 15" top rMBP and in general I love it, I use it for development and heavy graphics processing and it's been great, and coming from a window background, I'm really loving OSX (mission control is fantastic in particular as I run multiple VM's through Parallels) I was hoping to do a bit of gaming on the macbook, nothing too taxing, just games that have been released a few years ago that I hadn't got around to playing. I run Steam and a number of games in my library had mac versions through Steamplay, and while I thought these should be ok, generally I've been quite disappointed. I run the games at medium detail levels, and make sure i've closed Parallels, Safari, Mail etc, and while they run pretty smoothly, the fan kicks in and the noise is quite intense throughout the whole time the game is running. The games I'm running are The Witcher 2, Civ5 and X3:reunion. Has anyone else experienced this? Yes, I know, get a PC, or get a desktop, or get a console, the macbook isn't meant for gaming etc etc, but it's not like I'm trying to run Battlefield 4! I've heard suggestions that I should run all my games from a bootcamp Windows partition, which I really don't want to do - kind of defeats the whole purpose especially as the mac versions are there already, but I'm interested to hear if others have found this solves the problem. Any suggestions welcome, I'd love to hear if you have overcome this!
