    I've got the Retina Macbook Pro and I bought Portal 2 off Steam. The main menu loads up perfectly but when i click on single player or coop it doesn't work. I have to force quit it because it isn't responding, any help on how to make it work? I am using Mountain Lion by the way.

    I may be wrong here, but I don't think Valve has released a patch for Retina usage yet and maybe the cause for your problem.

    Also, it could well be a badly installed game, try reinstalling?

    Did you setup the graphic options like resolution and detail etc?

    I don't even think they need to patch it. LFD2 worked perfectly on it.

    Works great in Win7. Even runs at about 45fps at 2880x1800.

    Glad it worked out. Some games just need a patch, nothing serious, just to let the game know about the new computer it can run on and prevent conflicts.
