Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, Switch (VR content available on certain platforms but not touched upon in our review)Stefan Bekowsky hasn't been my partner for long. I've just made detective, and he patronises me for it endlessly, telling me to ask him for help every time he's not complaining about everything within his field of view. I can't stand Bekowsky, but his one redeeming feature is he's happy to drive. He's doing it now.
Yesterday, Bungie took to Twitch to reveal details about Destiny 2’s Curse of Osiris reveal, revealing details about new story, characters, destinations and even the expansion’s opening cinematic. Here’s what we’re getting, in handy bullet point form. Let's preface this by saying there isn't much new content planned for a competitive audience, but I watched the whole stream anyway, so here's some information. The opening cinematic is below.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a victim of its own prosperity. The game’s meteoric success has seen it set the highest all-time player peak on Steam (2.6m) and seen it bought by over 20m people since it was released onto Steam’s Early Access program in March. Unfortunately, the massive stacks of cash that it has earnt developers Bluehole — enough that they’ve created a new company, PUBGCorp, to manage the game — have encouraged a wave of imitations.
Long held realisation that Twitter makes me a worse person, and it gets to me far too much. Brevity and sarcastic atmosphere of the place messes with my autism too much. So i'm calling it a day. For work, best to reach me via email: Jtucker@nbmedia.com
@MckKirk@ultrabrilliant i guess, deleted it. Still, this is largely just saying 'hey, i want to play my way and this is bad because it doesn't let me'. Probably just being a bit weird with all the work stress. Apologies.
A massive problem with battle royale games and a lot of stuff spawned out of DayZ and other ARMA mods is that you can just be domed at long range with a single shot, ending a 30 minute game without a chance to react.
I think it's actually fine to dislike the fog, although I'm quite a fan. It's just that the core premise here is 'Fog means I can't snipe people at long range' and 'this makes the game more luck based' and both of those are.. fine, to be honest.
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".
