Materia Collective is trying to bring the Castlevania: Symphony of the Night soundtrack to vinyl via Kickstarter, the company recently announced. The company is seeking $30,000 USD for the campaign. The initiative, titled "Resurrection of the Night," ties into the game's 20th anniversary and has currently raised over $12,500 of its goal. As of writing, the project still has nine days to go, which leaves its success up in the air. One thing worth noting is the soundtrack is completely licensed.
The science fiction horror game Soma is coming to Xbox One on December 1st, developer Frictional Games announced today. The game will also receive a "Safe Mode" focused on exploration. Safe Mode will allow players to explore the game's environments without the threat of enemy attacks – similar to Assassin's Creed Origins' "Discovery Tour." It'll be available with the Xbox One release and as a free download for PC on December 1st. It'll come to PlayStation 4 at an unspecified date.
@JosephKnoop Warped Tour has always been about diversity - in music and attendance. The second Warped ever had Mushroom Head, 311, Beck and Blink-182. Eminem played in '99. All the bands that talked shit at Warped Tour are so lame.
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".
