Do you know the story of the Krampus? This big ol' hairy demonic bastard is one of Santa's buddies. While Saint Nick's busting out the gifts all over the darn place, Krampus's job is to punish the naughty kids. Said ‘punishment' takes different forms in different versions of the tale, but all are pretty uncool.

Maybe he'll just give you a shitty gift, but he might kidnap you or transport you to another dimension or something. That's just the kind of guy he is.

Why am I telling you this? Because Batman: Arkham Knight has a Christmas gift for us that has Krampus's name all over it. What have we done to deserve another slice of lukewarm, half-assed DLC?

The game's previous extra content hasn't been all that excitable. The concept's been decent enough, with Harley Quinn and Catwoman sidestories, but an extra half hour of content doesn't cut it around here, buddy boy. The final slice of DLC hit the game yesterday, and it'll have to be something really special to make up for what's come before.

This episode certainly has much more scope, with four villains all included: Mr. Freeze, Killer Croc, the Mad Hatter and Ra's Al Ghul. The trailer does a fair job of selling it, but I'm expecting it to be all cinematic and no pants like before.
