    To be honest I'm just glad clothing will have physics now, I couldn't stand the way the Chester armor moved (silver knight cape and Black priest robes as well).

    Almost every game out there has a cape, though only a handful have made it look good and "real" - but i have faith in Dark Souls 2 and hopefully they'll atleast give us sets with cloth parts and capes.

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.

    could just have it as a misc equipment slot. could be rings, capes, amulets, belts, etc. you still only get two slots but the effects are different and your character looks different.

    Oh yes! Oh yes yes yes!!

    I would go find a high windy tall pillary structure to stand on just because. I would also emote all the proper gestures while my cape of awesomeness was blowing in the wind...then I'd nap...zzz zz

    A cape slot would be AWESOME.
    Only if you could fill it with more than just capes, say a flowing scarf!
    Orrrrr, I don't know Ties, Bowties.
    OR FiLL IT UP WITH SHOULDER EQUIPMENT.
    Like, pauldrons, or some fantastic.

    I want a F***ing scarf.

    At first, I completely disregarded your statement, but I think I've merely misread it.
    As you said, capes will be in Dark Souls II, just like they are in Dark Souls I; As an accompaniment to certain armors. 
    As to why they're on every set shown? Well that's probably because they want to show off as much of the new engine as possible. 
     ------
    Onto the argument of how capes could be implemented as a constant of the game.
    The easiest solution would be to change the "ring" slot, to an accessory slot. This way, we wouldn't have every character in the game graciously gallivanting in grandiose garb. 
    I disagree with idea of customizeable cosmetics in the Souls series though.
    Dark Souls is not about making your character look the coolest, or making every piece of armor fit. It's about fording your way through the waters of torment that are your world.

     ^ A shoulder slot would be the best.

    As someone who picks armor almost entirely for looks, I can say I actually don't want capes. They would hide how I look and make it discouraging to find good-looking armor combos since, hey, your cape is going to cover it all anyway.

    Mind you I can see this exact same thing being used as a positive point for a min/maxer in that they can build whatever crummy-looking-yet-perfectly-statistical armor they want and simply hide it behind a cape. Still not for me though.

    A Neck Equipment slot, simple. For Amulets and Necklaces, (like in Diablo) Scarves, Capes, Panchos etc. Each obviously with it's own auxiliary affects. That way you'd have players wearing different variety to mix and match with armor. I've always felt a third ring slot was needed but a Neck Accessory slot would be great. Maybe even get covenant/guild emblems fashioned on them.
