On my trip through 1-1000, when I hit this piece I knew exactly who wrote it due to his fanaticism about x-mas music and video game remixes. Once again, even being a non-Christmas keeping kinda guy, I always really enjoy these mixes. This one is very much a distinct rift between the video game theme and the "Merry Little Christmas" theme. That being said, it's some real smooth stuff.
Are you sick of hearing about Titanfall? Too bad. Actually, I'll try to spare you a bit, as we talk about this game non-stop. But we blabbler on for good reason -- it's amazing. Instead of only blabbering on about just how amazing it is, we'll just update you with the new details from our hands-on experience here at gamescom 2013. There's a new mode, new loadout details and more. Many are getting their hands on Respawn's baby for the first time here at gamescom, so the buzz is insane today.
The year of our Lord Two Thousand Thirteen was a ridiculous and amazing year for videogames. One of the best, I'd say. The idea of narrowing down this year to ten games seems crazy, doesn't it? But, after much deliberation, we've done just that. Chances are that one or two of your favorites for 2013 are not among our top ten nominees for 2013 Game of the Year. I know how you feel. The entire Destructoid staff knows how you feel. There were just that many good games.
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".
