Kung Fu Panda Returns To Once Again Save The Day

We don't fear video games based on movies quite as much as we did in the past. Things have gotten a little better.

And one of the very first titles to hint at a progression was Kung Fu Panda, a surprisingly fun and rock solid action/adventure from High Moon Studios. Since that time, the talented developer has gone on to produce the equally solid Transformers: War for Cybertron, which was both lengthy and accomplished. Well, now it's on to Kung Fu Panda 2, which THQ has just announced. It's in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and DS, and features an all-new story and epic confrontations. The legendary art of Kung Fu is in danger of disappearing entirely and now, with the help of Po and the Furious Five, you must save it and restore balance to the planet. You'll fight, solve puzzles, and engage in a bit of platforming, as was the case in the first title. We expect this sequel to be loads of fun for gamers of all ages.

Not all games based on films are atrocious. Really, we've had quite a few this generation that were more than playable.

The video popup adds with sound enabled have done it for me. The adds are now to annoying. This will be the last time I will visit this site. I don't mind adds, they are essential to a website like this functioning. I tend to use the ads when I am interested in something, and have probably clicked numerous adds on this site. But really? Popup video adds with annoying sound?

i will say this about the ads on this site. they are annoying, and they are poorly implemented. i have twice encountered situations when i was "assualted" by indefinite ad loops that kept me from even getting to the site in the past week.

i'm not going to bail on the site, though. love its community too much.

Yes, the ads are annoying. But I don't blame the site for having them; they have to make money somehow. Also most sites similar to this one have ads like these nowadays. I don't know why you would leave because of ads that can simply be disabled with one click. Why can't you just click the mute button when coming here? It's not that hard to do.

I kind of think that the people who leave or complain a lot about the ads don't really know how the internet works. But that's just me. Don't let meaningless ads control your life!

EDIT: Also, I agree with what Soultaker said. Google Chrome is what you should be using as it makes it a lot less of a problem! =]

To all who are still seeing those ads


Just an FYI

If you switch your browser over to Mozilla's "Firefox", & then install "Ad-Block".....

....then presto...no more annoying ads.

(That's what most of us long-timers here have already done ever since those very first intrusive ad's)

The trouble, my friends, is that ad blockers prevent sites from earning the fees associated with the add that they carry, and in the end, PSX exists because of the ad revenue. Ben doesn't run the place out of the goodness of his heart, he has a living to make.

The ad assault by alienware wasn't a PSXE snafu I don't think because it attacked me the same way on other sites.

it definitely came from this site. it wasn't just the alienware ad. it would load ad aftetr ad up while restarting the counter. i even tried closing my browser, and coming back. it was weird becuase i'd be typing in the comment section just like i am now when it would luanch into the indefinite ad loop for no reason.

This is off-topic, but I'm having a problem submitting wallpapers Ben. After I submit it, I get this message

Request object error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005'

Do you know what I should do?

I don't have enough money to afford all the top tier games, I don't think this one is making it on my list.
