It's difficult enough, even when talking to friends who share my love of video games, to explain why competitive gaming matters. Trying to explain it to non-gamers is another story entirely, as they're mostly wired to believe that video games are, at best, merely a way to pass the time. It almost always comes back to that ugliest of curse words: real. “Games aren't real,” they're so proud to remind us, which of course means that we aren't permitted to truly care about them.
Some old dogs don't need new tricks. Persona 2: Innocent Sin for the PSP has been, in some circles, a very long time coming. Originally released in 1999 by Atlus for the Japanese PlayStation, this PSP port represents the first time the game has ever been available on American soil.
Built brick by brick, from scratch. The headline pretty much says it all. This LEGO model of the Thunderjaw from Horizon: Zero Dawn is pretty amazing. Built and photographed by Marius Herrmann, whose Flickr page has lots of other cool stuff on it, this impressive build was done totally free-form, without any schematic.
Reposting since I accidentally failed to remove some personal info from a third party. This is my apology to Kallie prior to any allegations, after I discovered she felt uncomfortable. I stand by it today. https://t.co/XR8XRxcaOo
With one final note, I want to say that no matter who you believe, no one has the implicit right to trample anyone's boundaries. Be your best self, and if someone tells you you've hurt them, apologize and be better. That's all I've got.
Here is my apology to Kallie upon finding out she felt uncomfortable with me a week prior to the allegations. I honored it all throughout our continued employment at IGN, and I mean it just as much today. https://t.co/bkNvuVsP3x
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".
