There will be a Nintendo Direct on Wednesday 13th September, kicking off at 11pm in the evening. Good old Nintendo, they're giving us time to get a few beers in. The Direct will focus on 2017 titles for both Switch and 3DS, and we'll see some more Mario Odyssey (hooray!) and possibly get a glimpse of the second Breath of the Wild expansion. It's slated for 45 minutes, so you can watch and still be asleep by a decent time.
It's fair to say that, since Bethesda's Creation Club launched a few weeks back, things have gotten off to a rocky start. Customers complaining that they're forced to download files they didn't purchase, free mods being broken by paid creations, and perhaps most vocally a war being waged over terminology. Is Creation Club offering DLC, or is it mods? Here is Bethesda's official description of Creation Club:And this is the short version of the community discussion.
Pint-sized poser Hideo Kojima's social media presence revolves around three things: food, movies, and puffing Death Stranding. Well two out of three ain't bad: behold, the birthday cake of AN AUTEUR. This is all perfectly normal. Just a man in his Joy Division t-shirt, with his goth cake, in the dark, with five candles lit at the points of a pentagram made out of spiderweb. The cake's design references this Death Stranding teaser, posted around E3 time.
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".
