Doom — the original Doom, from 1993 — never had loot boxes. Now it does. This is why we can't have nice things. OK, it's not actually as bad as it sounds. The "loot boxes" come from a new mod for ZDoom, a fan-made port that, among other things, allows you to play and alter the original Doom on modern computers. The so-called "Doom Loot Box Mod" removes all weapons and power-ups from the map, replacing them with locked crates.
We knew it was coming in late November, and now we have a date: 11/22. Nintendo's next mobile game, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, will be out on Wednesday. The tweet announcing the news pegs it for release on unspecified "mobile devices," which probably means a simultaneous Android and iOS launch. Pocket Camp rethinks Nintendo's enduring series about building a quiet, rural life in a small village filled with adorable talking animals.
It's amazing that Chance the Rapper keeps it together through this whole sketch. You can see him slip slightly at one point, no doubt bowled over by Kenan Thompson's forever-perfect Steve Harvey impression, but he recovers. It's always a laugh to see an SNL performer slip up and break character, but this sketch is hilarious on its own. The setup: For a special Thanksgiving edition of Family Feud, host Harvey pits his own family against a longtime friend's family.
@Brooklyn__Mets@ZhugeEX@jasonschreier My guess? That podcast shot to the top of Reddit and he was probably inundated with comment/coverage requests yesterday. And, like most stories, there's probably much more to what happened here than the secondhand account revealed.
@ZhugeEX@jasonschreier Yeah, it's really two sides of the same issue, right? On one hand, media types should know better; this is literally Journalism 101 stuff. On the other, so many people are quick to trust something crowdsourced like Reddit over actual reporters (can't imagine why!).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
