Shouldn't MacBook Air 2012 using Intel HD Graphics 4000?

Add on, Dota 2 runs 35~40 fps on my MBA 2012 (lowest setting with 1440x900 resolution) same spec with your MBA and with HD 4000.

LFD2 Runs great on my MBA (2012 HD 4000)
XCOM works surprisingly good (not great) but I play it on medium settings without problem.

Have someone tried Walking dead on their air? I've got season 1 on the ipad mini, but was thinking of playing season 2 on the MBA (if possible...)
