You’ve heard me say before that RPG demos are tough to judge, mostly because of how long it can take an RPG to really get its story and sytems rolling. Ni no Kuni II‘s Tokyo Game Show demo, however, concerns me. It had one feature I sure hope stays in the demo, or gets tones way down before launch: there’s way too much fucking treasure lying around. One of the best things about the PS3’s Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was exploration, both in town and on the overworld map. I loved it.
As you know, the Tokyo Game Show has just begun. Ever since the pre-show conferences earlier this week, we've all been excited: some of us were ready to play those games, some of us were cautiously optimistic and wanting more info, and some of us were hoping to case the venue for a massive robbery. Turns out one of these pursuits isn't cool with the uptight security folk.
Upcoming PS4/Vita shooter Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours got its first trailer recently. After 20 seconds of sweeping intro reminding you that Taito would really, really love to cash in on your nostalgia and call it a day, we're treated to some of the strangest song vocals I've ever heard in a game trailer. Check this out:The hell is she saying? I've transcribed what I think might be the lyrics below. Begin listening with the trailer above and follow along to see if I've made any mistakes.
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".
