With Phil on deadline and Andy in a different county, Samuel and Pip discuss a slew of indie games, as well answering about four weeks’ worth of questions from our various channels. The PC Gamer UK Podcast is a weekly podcast about PC gaming. Thoughts? Feedback? Requests? Tweet us @PCGamerPod, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This weekâ€™s music is from Destiny 2.
Samuel and Phil, fresh off their recent job promotions, gather to answer the questions of you: the listener. Or at least, the questions of those listeners that have actually asked us a question. We are yet to work out how to intuit your questions telepathically. We discuss which game lore we’d subjective ourselves too, reveal our pre-game settings rituals, wonder whether Sam was right to accept a free beer, and discover whether Phil is a secret faun.
Episode 41: …Apart from blowing up planets Friday, April 21st, 2017 by Phil Savage It’s another post-deadline podcast, but an incredibly tired PC Gamer team bravely soldiers on to talk about the latest in PC gaming and whether the Empire actually did anything wrong. We also answer your burning questions, such as could we beat up a three-year-old?
Always interesting when we, as a mag team, get emails about the latest web outrage.
"If your magazine does not come out on the side of the consumer...and come out HARD....I will sadly be cancelling my subscription."
Mate, you'll be angry about something else come deadline.
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".
