I stopped playing Overwatch in February of this year. Before I quit, I was driving beyond 250 hours played on a single account. I loved the game. A lot. I played competitive constantly, and I had a close circle of friends (both from the real and virtual worlds) to play with whenever I logged on. I quit playing in February not because I was bored of the game, but because Overwatch’s community had tilted too far towards toxic for my tastes. What does toxicity look like in a team-based, online shooter?
Thatgamecompany is a strange beast in the gaming world. For artistic affairs, there is perhaps no other studio as routinely revered and highly regarded as thatgamecompany. They made flOw, Flower and Journey. People who play a lot of video games know thatgamecompany by name and product. They are a staple in the genre, and having them tout something exclusive to the Apple platform is uniquely problematic for folks who live and die by their PCs and PlayStation 4s.
Nintendo sent out a press release this morning at 5:00 a.m. ET. The gist is that they have decided to make and sell the Super NES Classic into 2018 (their original plan was to stop on December 31, 2017), they’ve increased production for early shipments of the Super NES Classic, and they’ve decided to revive and sell the NES Classic next year. Here’s some of the release. They promise to ship more Super NES Classics than they did for the NES Classic, too.
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".
