I have lived through a lot of “yell a lot about video games” controversies in my time, but I have truly never seen anything like what’s currently happening in Star Wars Battlefront 2. I saw fans yell until the Mass Effect 3 ending was fixed through DLC. I saw fans yell until Diablo 3’s Auction House was killed. But I have never seen fans yell until not only were microtransactions stripped out of a game like Battlefront 2, but it called into question the predatory practices of the entire industry.
I’ve been taking the temperature of the Destiny community in the past day after the next Curse of Osiris livestream showed off the main gameplay features of the DLC. It’s…a little cool, and even though I personally think there’s some neat stuff at play here, I do understand where the community is coming from.
While I should be playing Horizon Zero Dawn DLC or finishing the Battlefront 2 campaign, I am instead catching butterflies to give to a talking eagle in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. This is Nintendo’s next big mobile offering, one that makes the most sense for the format since Pokémon GO, given that Animal Crossing is a game designed to be about checking in every so often without any real sense of urgency, and does not require intense graphics or deep gameplay systems. Perfect for mobile.
@Forbes Feel like no one's going to read past the title on this one, but I didn't know how else to phrase it. I think the problem might just be that four years of constant Destiny is getting exhausting (yes I know D2 took away some D1 stuff, but that's avoiding the main issue)
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".
