It’s been quite a while since we last saw Cole Phelps, investigator for the LAPD in 2011’s hit L.A. Noire. While he hasn’t been up to anything new since the game and its various expansions launched, his adventures have been ported on over to the PlayStation 4. Is this a remaster that is worth your time and cash? This is the case before us for this review. For those who may have forgotten, L.A. Noire takes place in 1947 Los Angeles.
Turn-based role playing games aren’t too common in Western markets. Demon Gaze was one such game ported over from Japan in 2014, and its sequel has now made the jump as well, to the PlayStation 4. Does Demon Gaze II continue with the first game’s mildly successful formula, or are things demonstrably different this time around? Time to find out in our review. The story on offer here is one of revolution. The player takes on the role of an amnesiac, who is rescued from certain death at the last second.
A lot can happen in three years. That’s how long The Sims 4 has been out on Windows. Porting PC games is usually a tricky art, as interfaces meant for mouse usage rarely translates into ease-of-use with the more restrictive analog stick. Then there’s also the issue of “dumbing down” a console port, to make compromises owing to a console’s limitations. But this is The Sims, a series that has been out for almost two decades now!
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".
