With Monster Hunter: World, Capcom is attempting to walk the fine line of satisfying fans while also roping in a whole new audience for the series' grand return to consoles. In our cover story on the game, we walk through a lot of the little details and tweaks that make this the most accessible entry yet. One of the major additions for newcomers is a thorough training area that lets players try out any weapon they want while not under attack from giant monsters.
With our cover story on Monster Hunter: World, we walked readers through three of the biggest and most exciting hunts that we played during our extensive hands-on time with the game. Sometimes to take down a huge monster in Monster Hunter: World, you need a little help. We've talked about the role of your little cat buddy Palico in the game, but you can also enlist the help of wild cats named grimalkynes to help you along your journey.
Welcome back to The Game Informer Show! We have a big, dense show for you this week and we hope you all enjoy it! On this episode, Ben Hanson, Andrew Reiner, Javy Gwaltney, and Matt Bertz dive into the mess that is Star Wars Battlefront II's microtransactions and botched progression system before breaking down the avalanche of games ported to the Nintendo Switch.
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".
