Like the previous events, players will head to the tower and pledge their loyalty to either Future War Cult, New Monarchy, or Dead Orbit by talking to each group's respective leader.
We're just a few days into the new year, which means most gaming outlets are busy doling out their final year-end awards to all of 2017's greatest titles. However, being the extremely efficient and professional editor that I am, I already did that, and am ready to stop living in the past and focus on the year ahead of us. And what a year it's going to be! Full of triple-A sequels and plucky indies and probably more lootboxes than you can shake a pitchfork and/or torch at.
The end of 2017 is upon us, which means most of us are busy arguing about our favorite games of the year. While you can expect a full rundown of G.I. 's 2017 picks and genre awards in January, you're under no obligation to wait for us. Now is your chance to declare your game of the year. If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that gamers had some marvelous GOTY contenders to choose from this year.
For today's Funny To A Point, I once again chronicled my favorite tradition of trying to summarize the storylines of video games for my wife and failing horribly. You're welcome! Hey why do I have so many characters left over? What is going on this is awf
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".
