Want to get fit and feel like a Jedi? Or just want to witness the maddest light show in all of VR? Beat Saber looks like it might be for you. Judging by the teaser trailer that captured VR fans’ attention over the weekend, Beat Saber has a very simple pitch: Audioshield but using lightsabers inside of shields. Notes that match a song approach the player and must be swiped in a certain direction.
Your best chance to feel like a sleek secret agent in VR is here: a VR modder has converted classic Monolith Productions shooter No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In Harm’s Way to VR. Okay, so it wasn’t exactly at the top of our lists for VR ports, but modder LukeRoss (who, obviously, is a big fan of the original) seems to have done a rock solid job porting the 2002 game over to the Oculus Rift. Though played with a standard gamepad instead of the Touch controller.
Kursk doesn’t sound like your average VR game. Instead of wave shooting or exploration, this upcoming project from developer Jujubee is a sort of interactive documentary that recounts the story of a Russian submarine disaster. Kursk is due for release later this year as a standard PC title and will be getting VR support as part of planned DLC. In the game, players will be cast as a member of the K-141 Kursk nuclear-powered Russian submarine.
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".
