# First Uchu Sentai KyuRanger Teaser Promo Online! Is it that time again? I’m having so much fun with Zyuohger that i don’t want them to go into Super Sentai history. A second season would have been a good compensation for Ninninger, which in turn had a better soundtrack and mecha design considering that the main robot of the red ranger controlled a larger frame built by the other robots/vehicles.

# Arkham Knight – Mister Freeze Playthrough Victor Freeze is one of the tragic villains the Batman has to face from time to time and i dig what they did with him in the Arkham series of games, providing a fitting but sad ending in Arkham Knight[2]. Bat’s comment at the end is a tad harsh though.
