Hey, Nintendo 64 — buddy. Pal. I hear you’ve got a birthday today? Congratulations! How old you turning? 21? Hoo boy. That’s an age, alright. You’ve probably heard a tale or two about what it’s like to hit the big 2-1, and what it opens up for you. If you became an adult in the eyes of the law at 18, this is when you become one in the eyes of everyone else. I want to temper your expectations a little bit here, though.
Nintendo Badge Arcade pushed out its last update today. The app was two-and-a-half years old. A free download on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Badge Arcade gave players a new way to decorate their system’s home menu. The arcade’s crane game had a slew of badges based on Nintendo franchises to collect that would update on a weekly basis. Nintendo fans appreciated the various, well-designed badges, which required buying game credits to win.
2017 is shaping up to be big for mascots whose franchises thrived in the 1990s, from a Crash Bandicoot remaster to new Sonic games and even a new Bubsy game. But it’s a relative newcomer to the platforming genre — Lucky the fox, star of November’s Super Lucky’s Tale — whose return I’m most interested in. I played a breezy demo of the upcoming Windows 10 and Xbox One exclusive during E3 2017, shortly after Microsoft announced it during its press conference.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
