The top 100 selling video games of 2017 have been revealed - and football sim fifa 18 is king. The annual soccer franchise beat off stiff competition from shooter Call of Duty: WW2 and ageing guns-and-gangsters hit GTA 5 to grab the no1 physical game disc sales chart. Assassin's Creed's resurgence last year in its Egypt themed Origins instalment helped it to shift some serious units and make no4 in the GfK Chart-Track list.
A Nintendo boss has said virtual reality and 4K tellies could kill off the games firm. Philippe Lavoué, who is France's Nintendo chief, said the company will not be focusing on bringing out its own VR headset soon. And he reckons that 4K high-resolution TV sets are a waste of time for the firm too. Mr Lavoué believes if Nintendo tries to emulate Sony and Microsoft by bringing out 4K consoles with VR headset "we’re bound to die" because it can't compete with its rival.
Okami was a classic on the PlayStation 2. The 2006 release wowed gamers on the console with its clever use of painting gameplay alongside more traditional Japanese role-play fighting mechanics. And enough time is felt to have passed for the makers to re-release the title with a HD makeover. But how has "one of the greatest games of all time" aged? Very well it turns out. This is a full-on classic Japanese visual feast.
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".
