The Yakuza series has excelled in presenting poignant stories balanced by over-the-top action and humor since the first entry released in 2005. However, it wasn't until the release of last year's Yakuza 0 that the series gained real prominence in the West. I was one of the fans who discovered the series with that game, and though it's only been a year since I first played it, I would rank the Yakuza series up with my favorite games of all time.
I've loved the revitalization of the adventure genre by the Telltale Games and others that have followed in their footsteps. But, even though the narratives of games like The Walking Dead and Life is Strange are still enthralling, the gameplay is starting to run stale. Although the stories are lovely, those titles are more "watch your own adventure" than "choose your own adventure."
What if you stripped Skyrim of the fantastical creatures and magic? Would it still be fun? Warhorse Studios seeks to answer that question with Kingdom Come: Deliverance, their first title. Instead of dragons and Dwemer ruins, Kingdom Come takes a more historical approach. It's a risky gamble, as real life tends to be a lot more mundane than fiction. I mean, who wants to play in a world filled with disease, manure, and illiteracy?
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".
