by Joey Davidson | June 23, 2017 The Nintendo Switch is still pretty hard to find. Unless you refresh retailers online constantly, don’t mind paying more to buy it from a third-party seller or happen to live somewhere that has more stock, buying the console in a typical fashion has become exceedingly difficult.
Super Mario Odyssey was a massive performer at E3 2017, doing Nintendo a lot of favors by generating more hype for the Nintendo Switch and scooping up heaps of praise from press and fans along the way. The folks at Digital Foundry did a tech analysis of the demo they played, and they came away impressed with its ability to run at 60fps both handheld and docked. Doing so, though, required some unique coding from Nintendo. The video below explains, but we’ll touch on it too after that.
Aside from the absurd f-bomb drops, I was really excited when Ubisoft unveiled Beyond Good & Evil 2 for the second time at E3 earlier this month. The original game was something I enjoyed immensely, and I was one of the many that hung onto Michel Ancel’s every mention of the franchise following that original one’s release. The trailer debuts for the new one, and it’s cinematic only. Okay, fine, that happens. Companies do this when they want to cast a certain tone over their game.
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".
