Nintendo is out here proving once again that they are a hard company to predict. In April, they will be releasing a series of DIY accessories called Nintendo Labo, and they will be made entirely out of cardboard. That’s right, cardboard. Think Google Cardboard but way more complex and interactive. Children and adults can use various Nintendo Labo kits such as a piano, fishing rod, and robot. You know what that means? The cancelled Project Giant Robot on Wii U has been resurrected!
After a needed Winter Break, the gang is back (except for Alan, poor guy) to talk about some more games, starting with some cool tech from CES, like a 65 inch monitor from Nvidia and a Hyperkin Game Boy with a backlit screen. Then we review the Nintendo Direct Mini that aired this Thursday, featuring some new announcements that were mostly port and Mario Tennis Aces. Finally, we close the show with a review of 2017 and just how legendary it was for gaming.
It goes without saying that 2017 was a fantastic year for video games. A year we will look back on with fondness, as quality titles were released in mass quantities. To help commemorate this year as we move forward to 2018, our gaming division consisting of me, Chris Del Castillo, and Alan Plummer have created our personal Top 10 list of favorite 2017 games. So without further ado, here is my list.
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".
