    Looking for something to show off this screen...I like sic-fi stuff, like Dead Space etc...Would like one game that will run on my new 13"rMBP...I know the HD4000 limits choice, but does anybody have any thoughts / suggestions?

    Doom 3, Quake IV or Prey should run well with HD4000 in OS X.

    Possibly even Rage.:)

    If your goal is to run in retina resolution, then you are pretty much stuck with games made more than 4-5 years ago.
    However at 1280x800 res you will run a lot of games.

    The 13 inch features a whopping 1600p res, which kinda need the best cards on the market (for desktops) is SLI/XFire configuration.

    The Intel HD 4000 is quite ok, and will run many games, just not at full retina resolution.

    Yep, I already own Doom for Mac, and I am pleasantly surprised at just how well the HD 4000 copes with it...It's an old game, and I didn't buy the MBP for games, but it flies in DOOM3...Overall, I am hugely impressed with my new Mac.

    Borderlands 2 is pretty cool, and I still love Unreal Tournament 2004.. and it'll run at full resolution and graphics easy in OSX
