After the major Zelda and Mario releases in 2017, what’s next for the Switch console? Expect new entries for Kirby, Yoshi and, perhaps best of all, Pokémon. Nintendo might also add a web browser to the console. There will likely be a Nintendo 64 mini console later this year, too. Beyond Forza Motorsport 7, Xbox One X hasn’t had too many elite games yet. That could change with Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
Looking for a great time-travel adventure? The Thrifty Guide to the American Revolution is a hilarious read, posing as a real-life guide for time travelers visiting the American Revolution-era U.S. It provides useful information for time travelers, like:• Where can I find a decent hotel room in colonial New England? Are major credit cards accepted? • How do I join the Boston Tea Party without winding up in a British prison? • How can I score a lunch with Alexander Hamilton?
It has been a terrific year for gaming. Here are the top contenders for BL’s 2017 Boysie Awards. The Nintendo Switch brought us two epic open-world games. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild kicked things off last spring. It’s not only the most beautiful game Nintendo has ever made, but it’s also one of the biggest. Last fall, Super Mario Odyssey made us dream of being inside Mario’s world. That’s because this creative game allows players to go almost anywhere and do almost anything.
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".
