The world of The Elder Scrolls is a massive place full of wonder and lore. Since 1994, the series has mostly managed to impress gamers with its wondrous environments, fantastical creatures, and slick RPG gameplay. It’s safe to say that The Elder Scrolls is one of the greatest video game franchises ever conceived, and the latest entry in the series, Skyrim, served to further cement that statement. Simply put, Skyrim was a near-perfect adventure that was daunting, impressive, and epic.
It's fitting that Severed is on the Vita, because it's exactly the kind of game that handheld touchscreen devices were made for. That comes as a positive and a negative, though. As much fun as the latest offering from Guacamelee developer DrinkBox Studios may be, it's designed in such a way that it's more enjoyable if you play it in short bursts. Longer play sessions aren't as much fun, even if you may be instantly wowed by the novelty of the gameplay.
The digital download space has truly taken off and is now as integral to buying games as brick-and-mortar stores. Though the nostalgia of owning a disc-based title complete with a shiny case is certain to stay with some people for a long time, others have embraced digital downloads. No longer just an avenue for indie games and MMOs, huge publishers and developers now release their content through online and offline market places.
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".
