Star Wars Battlefront's producer has reassured fans content will not be held back from the initial release of EA's upcoming shooter to be sold later as DLC. Taking to Reddit, Jesper Nielsen stressed the team is committed to releasing a game that expands on the strengths of past titles when it comes to core gameplay, and there'll be plenty of content available at launch. "I cannot stress this enough; there will be more than 8 maps!" he wrote.
A particularly dedicated member of the team managed to get it sorted at the last minute. A particularly dedicated member of the team managed to get it sorted at the last minute. Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai has revealed new outfits for Zero Suit Samus in the upcoming brawler, based on her appearance in Metroid Fusion and Metroid Zero Mission. The images, which you can see below, come from Miiverse and are definitely skimpier than most of Samus' other get-ups.
The BBC has revealed it's working on a new drama focused on the people behind the creation of Grand Theft Auto. BBC News reveals the "new drama based on Grand Theft Auto" will come as part of a concerted effort to get the UK more interested in coding and technology. Other aspects of the scheme include giving a million Micro Bits - stripped down computers similar to a Raspberry Pi - to students starting secondary school this year.
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".
