A Slow Start, But We’ll Be Back, Ready, & Awesome – Editor in Chief Message for May 2015

May.

The month where the weather gets warmer, grass is freshly cut, and classes are now coming down to the wire with finals and graduation preparation. Some of us, both me and the staff, will be on crunch time but when it’s over, we’ll be doing one hell of a comeback.

This month for the entertainment world, there’s a lot to see and offer. For movies, it’s no surprise (personally, I didn’t do it) that you’ve seen Avengers: Age of Ultron two or three times now over the weekend and our writer Stephon has a review up!. Later, we’ll see a post-apocalyptic world with crazy scavengers and high octane car chases in Mad Max: Fury Road, see a nation against others in a crazy acapella competition in Pitch Perfect 2, an out of this world adventure to a city of tomorrow in Tomorrowland, follow a CIA analyst in her transformation as a secret agent in SPY, and see California get hit with seismic natural disasters in San Andreas.

It may not be much this month, but for games, they have us saving the world from evil forces in The Witcher III: Wild Hunt and a PS4 re-release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for the Playstation 4. We also may be taking a break from the gaming, but we won’t stop streaming on our Twitch channel with Mortal Kombat X and Bloodbourne gameplay from our streamer, Brandon P.

Also, it’s a good time for your favorite fall shows to have their season finales such as The Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Arrow, Chicago P.D., and more.

We have a huge announcement next week on Monday, May 11th. Stay tuned, it’s quite awesome.

From us and the rest of the staff, we want to say thank you for your patience and for those who are on finals, we wish you all the best of luck is passing them. For those graduating this month, congratulations!

As always, keep it here on tehlunchboxpub.wordpress.com, and be sure to LIKE and FOLLOW us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube.

Stay Cool,

Me Chibi!

Mortal Kombat X Rage Quitters Beware!

Mortal Kombat co-creator and head of NetherRealm Studios, Ed Boon, took to twitter and posted a picture warning to all Rage Quitters (People who quit an online session or match early).

Uh Oh...

Uh Oh…

It’s simple, you quit and your opponent online enjoys a nice message next to a body without a head.

Think it’s worth it to flip over a match now?

Mortal Kombat X is released for Playstation 4 and XBOX One on April 14th, 2015 and coming soon for Playstation 3 and XBOX 360.
