I'd love to know as well. I had 0 problems with Hitman on my nVidia 1070 card, but I at least had a demo to try out first.

Thanks for the heads-up, can't wait to hear more about the state of Deus Ex!

Second this - been desperately awaiting this one for a year!

Thunderbolt 3 has made me not care about a proper desktop. I have a TB3 dock that powers the laptop with 2 externals, KB+M, and a Time Machine backup, and serves as an amazing hybrid desktop replacement.Though, I can get away with this because I don't need anything more powerful than a MBP for everyday tasks except gaming, which the gaming PC handles.

Add in an Thunderbolt 3 eGpu and you don't even need a gaming PC

Check out the forums and implementation guides on https://egpu.io/.  Short answer is you definitely can, but what eGPU enclosures work with your Mac Mini model and which graphics cards and how easy it is to do in OS X vs. Windows will depend on your specific Mac Mini model, so you should check out what others have done. High Sierra will have official support, but it's not clear yet whether that will extend back to Thunderbolt 1/2 models (which work unofficially now) or whether that will include nVidia graphics cards.

For reference, I'm using an Akitio Node Thunderbolt 3 enclosure, with an Apple Thunderbolt 3 to 1 adaptor, and an nVidia 1070 on my Thunderbolt 1 2012 Macbook Pro Retina. OS X was super easy to setup for me, Windows was a bit of a pain in the ass (mainly due to the internal nVidia 650m card).

Bioshock (2) Remastered, seems a sure thing now.
I wonder if and how they are coming to the Mac App Store.
As free updates to the originals, like on Steam, or will they get rid of the originals or sell both versions side by side.

Hitman is still not on the Mac App Store.
I hope Hitman will support nVidia cards rather sooner than later.
Reminded me a bit of the time when 'Tomb Raider Anniversary' was supposed to get that PowerPC patch...

Have you tried the Hitman demo on your nVidia card? I tried that, and then bought the full game and both have worked flawlessly on my nVidia card (1070).
