Here’s a little blip we missed last week; in the same Eidos Montreal blog post where art director Nicolas Cantin backed off from his “less gothic, more mainstream” comments, the developer confirmed pacifist playthroughs are possible. “Players will have multiple ways to approach their objectives and each objective can be reached using Garrett’s various tools, by exploring and by playing with your environment. And yes, you can complete the game without killing anybody – Garrett is a Master Thief, not a killing machine.” Thief is expected on PC and next-generation platforms in 2014.

Bungie issued a gentle cough via its Facebook page, politely drawing attention to the wallpapers section of its Destiny website. The site has a number of lovely concept art images for your desktop-plastering pleasure, and while you’ve probably seen most of them, one was described as a “Titan riding a Pike”.

Microsoft has gone a little mad buying out just about every version of XboxGold.com it can find, Fusible reports. Naturally this has led to some furious speculation over whether we have a name for the next Xbox console at last, but don’t get too excited; “Xbox Gold” sounds a heck of a lot like “Xbox Live Gold”, so it could just be a defensive measure against scam websites and similar. The next Microsoft console is codenamed Durango and is frequently nicknamed “Xbox 720″ but we honestly have no idea what the damn thing will be called.
