    Anyone have any experience with the Dolphin emulator on Mac? I'd love to be able to play some of my old Gamecube games in HD if possible. I got Paper Mario to run but I'm having issues getting my DualShock 4 to work properly for it.

    I use an adapter to hook up my Gamecube controller to my Mac, and it works pretty much flawlessly as far as Dolphin is concerned. http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00RSXRLUE Not so great for PC games that rely on "Xbox" controllers, though. The Gamecube controller is internally-wired too weird for them.

    Games run fine, but performance obviously depends on hardware.

    Thank you, I'll look into that. Do you think a 2013 15" rMBP would be able to run those games acceptably?

    My rMBP has a 2.3GHz i7 processor, 8GB RAM, and a GT 650M graphics card, and it only really seems to struggle running "high-performance" games like F-Zero GX.

    Trying to enhance the graphics doesn't actually seem to hurt performance a ton, although the fan speed will get crazy, so I don't usually bother.
