    We need long, flowing capes, with gorgeous air physics which make them float around in a heroic manner.

    Every game needs Caps, and those that have it are 20% cooler.

    ^Two out of three is enough for me.

    I want a dark blue one with a crest on it.

    I'd rather it just be that certain outfits have capes. If the cape is an equipment slot then you wouldn't be playing practically to go without one, such as wearing no helm. Thus everyone would be wearing a cape which would look pretty damn silly. Sometimes I like to wear a cape and sometimes I don't.

    Unless the cape was just for looks (forgot how to spell the proper term) Tolvo. More of a fashion thing really.

    Then I'd say it was a waste of a slot anyway.

    I approve that, could be a bit more general perapse. Like maybe it being more of a accessory. So it could be something that cape lover would fit with something else. Like maybe a belt of pouch around you, a coat over your armor (kind of like the one we seen so far), having off hand weapon over your back, etc. But the cape would really be great. From what we saw in the 12 minute gameplay the physic seam very fluent to piece of clothe compare to DS. Then again, ninja flipper in dress would probably luck funny. Can't wait to see that

    That is true Tolvo. Unless the capes have increased resistances to elements like fire, lighting. etc.

    Make the cape replace the head set and I'd be fine. If not make the game have real cape physics. So make it get stuck in twigs if your running after a long period of time.

    I really don't see this happening in Dark Souls though.

    There are plenty of people who go without helms in Dark Souls and it's completely practical if you're build doesn't require one. I really do not understand your logic here.

    i think capes should make you susceptible to grabbing attacks by enemies that way only pro's or people who value form over function would wear them.

    I don't understand how capes can't be a part of a dark-fantasy/medieval style. No one said they had to be bright and vibrant.

    Humbug. This is Dark Souls.

    You are not cool. Nor are you faux-cool, pretend-epic, psuedo-legendary or any of that other nonsense you'd see in the trailers for lesser games.

    I'm going with no. A cloak, sure. Cloaks are practical. They're blankets/beds/protection from weather. Capes are just something for your enemies to grab for leverage.

    I am going to quote Bronn from Game Of Thrones here:

    What good is one of those cloaks; gets in the way and slows you down...

    By your same logic, why not include guns that shoot purple dildoes and kill everyone in one hit, at any distance?

    To actually address your point, the weapons/armor are very much grounded in reality, if exaggerated somewhat in some cases. Even the magic is generally inkeeping with old myths and legends about magic and its powers. Capes have no similar grounding. One did not enter battle wearing a cape. If possible the cloak would be ditched, for the same reason capes didn't see combat, but at least cloaks are more than a status symbol.

    Also when you died you were dead for good and monsters like giant cyclops mole rats didn't exist

    in the essence of a battle field I believe that a sorcerer of sorts would wear a cape due to his outlying position on the battlefield.
