And that's just for the headset! If you were thinking of holding out for the HTC Vive Pro, you might want to reconsider after hearing the price. Pre-orders have opened for the new model, which packs built-in headphones and brings an increased resolution of 2880 x 1600. The headset is due out April 5 for a whopping $800. There is a silver lining, though. If you're open to the original Vive, that has dropped down to $500.
Paragon may be on the way out, but Epic Games is making the most of the MOBA's demise. It's giving away a bunch of game assets for developers to use as they see fit in Unreal Engine 4, including the "base meshes, textures, skins, animations, abilities and character FX, and dialogue" for 20 different Paragon characters. There's also free environmental assets and a sample map.
It's all patched upSega has fixed the demo for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and put it back on PlayStation Network. Folks who nabbed the demo originally were able to play far more of Yakuza 6 than the developers ever intended, and once the publisher got wind of the gaffe, it took the demo off the storefront and revoked access for those who had already managed to download it.
If any of you bought the Burnout Paradise remaster and haven't messed with multiplayer challenges, you must. It's the highlight of the game for me. You haven't lived 'til you've herded seven players in a line so the eighth can jump over them.
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".
