‘Cold, Cold Heart’ is an expansion for Batman: Arkham Origins that introduces the wintry villain Mr. Freeze. Tragically, at no point in this add-on does Mr. Freeze say “Stay cool” or “Let’s kick some ice!” or even “Revenge is a dish best served cold.” It’s as if he doesn’t realise the entire point of being a cold-themed bad guy is the incredible variety of puns available to him.

Instead, he teams up with the Penguin to kidnap a philanthropist during a Gotham City charity event. This is why Bruce Wayne doesn’t use his fortune to fight crime at its source by stamping out poverty – every time he tries, a bunch of goons in masks arrive and wave guns in the air before taking hostages so their boss can threaten them. Which Mr. Freeze does, while completely missing the perfect opportunity to say, “This seems like an ice party.”

Sigh.
