Gameplanet New Zealand Latest updates from Gameplanet - New Zealand's #1 destination for gamers. Sat, 01 Nov 2014 13:23:56 +1300 Zend_Feed_Writer 1.12.3 (http://framework.zend.com) http://www.gameplanet.co.nz/ contact@gameplanet.co.nz (Gameplanet) Gameplanet Friday Briefing: The Evil Within, GTA V, PAX Aus, and more According to Ars Technica, the one-hour time limit for the PlayStation 4’s Share Play feature simply requires you to restart the sharing session after 60 minutes. There is apparently no limit on the number of times you can do this.

It looks like Blizzard is planning on having World of Warcraft stick around until at least 2024. "I definitely can't tell you what our 20th anniversary is going to be, I can tell you there is definitely going to be one,” lead designer Ion Hazzikostas told CNET. “I have no doubt saying that. We're definitely planning into the future, talking about what the next expansion is going to be, and what the one after that is going to be, just in terms of big picture storylines, how can we start setting things up now, where do we want the game to go.”

Twitch is streaming many of the panels taking place this weekend at PAX Aus. The full schedule is here, and you can watch here.

Dyack's back, and so is Shadow of the Eternals Polarising game developer Denis Dyack is back, and so is his twice-rejected Kickstarter project Shadow of the Eternals.

Dyack’s new company is called Quantum Entanglement Entertainment Inc. (or "QE2"), and its mission is to develop video games, movies, and television shows.

As reported by IGN, Dyack called the merging of the three platforms “the singularity”, and said that Shadow of the Eternals would be QE2's first project.

Lords of the Fallen review [i]Lords of the Fallen[/i] copies, but it does so from great sources in a mostly competent fashion, and adds in a few neat systems of its own.

All is not hunky dory in the world of Lords of the Fallen. A horrid army pours into its reality from an unfortunately accessible demon dimension, doubtless doing immeasurable damage to the local tourism industry. Who ya gonna call? In this case you call Harkyn, a bald, tattooed bruiser of fearsome reputation. He’s in the middle of some hard time, but he cuts a deal: you let me out of jail, and I’ll do some demon-smashing for you. Harkyn saunters into the beginning of the game as a free man, so it must be time to start upholding his end of the bargain.

Lords of the Fallen is a third-person dungeon-crawler-brawler heavily inspired by the Dark Souls series. Players take charge of the gruff Harkyn and go forth armed with the bare minimum of backstory. The criminal accompanies a sage named Kaslo to a snowy castle where Bad Things have happened, and then it’s straight into gameplay: tactical, in-depth combat against demonic enemies. Here, each opponent must be treated with respect lest a late block, tired roll, or over-zealous attack mean that the encounter becomes Harkyn’s last.

Driveclub's online issues stem from game code not servers An error in Evolution Studios' code rather than server trouble is to blame for Driveclub's online woes, Sony says.

“In the programming of the game, there was an error that prevents us from welcoming enough players at the same time,” PlayStation France's Philippe Cardon told French outlet Gameblog [via Google translate].

“All this is being reprogrammed, but it takes much longer than simply adding 1000, 2000, or 3000 servers.

Far Cry 4's asymmetric PvP mode unveiled Ubisoft has unveiled Battles of Kyrat, Far Cry 4’s PvP mode the company says shows the world in a completely different way.

Battles of Kyrat is a re-telling of a long-past war that the Golden Path rebellion fought against the Rakshasa, Pagan Min’s elite guard.

The Rakshasa are mythical warriors of Kyrat with strong ties to their natural surroundings. They only use traditional weapons – specifically the bow – but are capable of crafting multiple alterations to their weapons, and can call upon animals to help defend and attack.

Shadow of Mordor's Lord of the Hunt DLC has mounted warchiefs and more The contents of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's first DLC pack have been outlined by publisher Warner Bros.

Lord of the Hunt, which is due later this year, will see the player tame and ride two new beasts while seeking out mounted warchiefs.

The new beasts are both variations on those existing in the game: a wretched graug is a graug that spits poison, and there’s a stealthier caragor called a caragath. The player will also be able to summon hordes of ghuls (zombies) to do his or her bidding.

Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition review Third time's a charm. Beamdog has delivered the definitive Icewind Dale experience.

To gamers of a certain age with certain genre proclivities the mere mention of the words “Infinity Engine” can cause a subtle glazing of the eyes, a faraway stare and a knowing smile.

The engine was used for a very short period by only two studios, but it gave RPG fans five great titles in as many years. Three of these are widely acknowledged as examples of the very best the genre has to offer, the remaining two are also exceptional games but see much less attention. Icewind Dale is an exceptional RPG, and fine example of an Infinity Engine game - even if it did choose a slightly more linear and much chillier route.

Dying Light hands-on Dying Light is familiar in many ways, and not just because it was once a Dead Island sequel. There’s an apocalyptic setting, an open world, weapon crafting, and the usual zombie archetypes. However, in the days of triple-A iteration rather than revolution, the introduction of Mirror's Edge parkour to the arthritic zombie survival genre is enough to get our interest.

The slice I play takes place during the day in a South American favela overlooking a harbour – think slum shacks with tin roofs, concrete stairs, and plenty of steel bars. As the new guy joining a group in a safe house, the player character has drawn the short straw, and has been sent out to secure another safe house lost overnight. The kicker is that I must do it within seven minutes, because that’s how long game demos run for at expos.

Mythos: The Beginning trailer Mythos: The Beginning is a survival horror/adventure role playing game based on the pulp-horror and monster movies of the 1930s. Set in London in 1934, Mythos tasks you with creating your own paranormal investigator from scratch and guiding them through a frightening exploration of the infamous Harborough Asylum. Three young university students have vanished while attempting to conduct a scientific survey of this dreaded place, and it's up to you to find them! Throughout the night you'll discover that Harborough Asylum's reputation is more than an urban legend, and you'll have to fight for your life against otherworldly Lovecraftian foes.

Out now on Steam.

Harborough Asylum is an abandoned mental hospital located on the outskirts of London. It was established in 1882 and soon built up a reputation as London's harshest institution thanks to its brutal and controversial treatments. After a string of mysterious patient deaths, said to number more than 40 victims, it was finally closed down during World War I and has been disused ever since. Despite this turn of events, Harborough Asylum remained one of England's most infamous sites, soon becoming the subject of an alarming number of local ghost stories. Now Harborough Asylum is a place where only the most bravest (or foolish) men would dare to tread.

You play as a renowned paranormal investigator, best known for solving a famous missing persons case several years ago. Tonight, Professor Harrison Blacktail, a mysterious academic somehow connected to the asylum's past, has turned up in your hotel room at the Imperial Arms. He has commissioned you for the most dangerous case of your career: search for three missing students inside Harborough Asylum, and discover whether the terrifying legends are true.
