Nintendo will release a new update for its mobile runner, Super Mario Run, later this month that adds a new playable character, a new world and a new mode to the Android and iOS game. Super Mario Run’s Sept. 29 update will add Daisy to the roster of runners, making her the seventh playable character (not counting Yoshi color variations). Nintendo is also adding a new world called World Star. That new world will feature nine new levels and will unlock after completing worlds one through six.
This year’s Tokyo Game Show was a big one for Earth Defense Force, D3Publisher’s long-running third-person shooter series. There were three EDF games playable at the show: Earth Defense Forces 5, Earth Defense Force 4.1: Wingdiver The Shooter (a new top-down shoot ‘em up) and Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain. It was the last title that was most intriguing. Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is fascinating for a number of reasons.
Konami brought a playable version of the recently announced Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner — Mars to Tokyo Game Show this week, showing off how surprisingly good the PlayStation 2 game looks after being remastered in 4K on PlayStation 4. The game was also playable on a PlayStation VR headset, and played like a good example of how the transition from a traditional 3D game to VR can often be rough.
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".
