The New 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Game Stays True To The Comic Book Universe

You may remember an X-Men film from last year with the same name as this game, and they do tell the same basic story. The difference, however, is the game is true to the 1981 comic book story line and the movie is... well, not. X-Men: Days of Future Past is also a regular paid game with no in-app purchases.

[Headphones Recommended] Watch Lenovo's Legitimately Terrible Ads For The P90, Because They Star An Anthropomorphic Bear

It's that time again, everyone: time for a trip down Terrible Smartphone Advertising Lane. Sometimes it's about the weird ads, or the cringe-y ones, or the ones that straight up suck. Let me give you some hints as to which direction we're heading today with Lenovo's new P90 smartphone ads, which feature:

  • A human in a bear suit, acting like a human. But he is a bear.

Borderlands is a super-popular series of intense, multiplayer-focused first-person shooter games. So it's odd, very odd, that the most exciting thing to happen to the series since the original game came out in 2009... is a single-player, offline, point-and-click adventure title.
