Thanks to a $1.1 billion deal with Google, HTC will continue supporting its virtual reality headset, The Vive, according to Gamesindustry.biz. The deal with Google will split the money two ways: into HTC and Google's smartphone business, and to the former's VR initiatives. An undisclosed amount of HTC employees will join Google to work on phones, while the former picks up support for its VR headset and investments into augmented reality, the outlet reports.
Recently announcing a slew of its games coming to the Nintendo Switch, Bethesda believes the handheld-console hybrid could bring the company an entirely new audience, VP of marketing for the company Pete Hines told Venture Beat. As of now, Bethesda has three games coming to Nintendo's latest machine: re-releases of Doom and Skyrim, as well as the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Colossus.
The recent discovery of the 1984 game NES Golf hidden inside the Nintendo Switch led many to speculate it was a test for later NES and Super NES games expected to come to the console in the future. However, a new theory that's surfaced behind why it's hidden in each Switch is less economical and far more touching.
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".
