Overwatch is getting an overhaul to its loot box system, which should make fans who hated duplicates happy. The better news is that the changes are already live on the Public Test Realm. Under the new system, the dev team has "drastically" reduced the chance of duplicates appearing when players open new loot boxes. Players who were annoyed with the duplicates sold them for credits, and Blizzard acknowledged that, saying it would also increase the amount of credits players get in the loot boxes.
We've known that Visceral Games has a Star Wars title in the works. Nothing was mentioned at EA E3 press conference about it, meaning it is still in a galaxy far, far away. However, a Star Wars fan site is reporting some details that could give us the first clue on what to expect. MakingStarWars.net is reporting several plot details for Project Ragtag, the code name for the new game, and on the chance that some of these details are accurate, we will throw out a big SPOILER warning now.
As suspected, the Steam Summer Sale has officially kicked off today, and as expected the site has some incredible deals on popular games. Also, as expected, the site is getting hammered, so you might have to refresh several times to see the deals. Some of the better ones we've seen:
There are plenty more sales for today, so head over and see what specials you can get on your favorite games.
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".
