No games can craft immersive worlds or tell complex stories quite like RPGs. This year has already seen some fantastic entries in the genre, like Persona 5 and Yakuza 0 – not to mention titles like Horizon: Zero Dawn and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which heavily adapt and incorporate RPG elements. Even with all of the hours you could spend playing those games, the remainder of 2017 still has some standout RPGs to be excited about.
BioWare is seeing some changes in its leadership today, as longtime general manager Aaryn Flynn is stepping down. However, another familiar face is assuming the leadership role: Casey Hudson, who is returning to lead the company. As Flynn points out in his farewell post, he has been with BioWare for 17 years, and he has run the studio since the departure of co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk in 2012.
In The Legend of Zelda series, the Master Sword is a powerful weapon wielded by a legendary hero. However, that ancient blade pales in comparison to a new sword one player received thanks to an unexpected glitch. In this Reddit thread, user Eastonator12 shows how a crash resulted in a peculiar weapon – a Lynel sword with an attack value high enough to defeat any enemy in the game (including the last one) in a single hit.
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".
