I can't play this game

#1 Posted by Surkov (990 posts) -

This might sound weird but I can't play this game because of Batman's cape. It takes up too much of the screen and I'm tried of the staring at it.

This is one of the dumbest reasons I've ever seen to not play a great game.

Wow...

Well if your playing it on PC, from the looks of some of these costume mods you could potentially get rid of it.

Woah, it's a great game. The cape? Don't let something like that stop you playing!

YO I TOTALLY AGREE THAT SHIT IS FUCKED UP HOMEY

Really? It's a great game and a cape shouldn't stop you.

Why wasn't I warned about this? Going to return my copy I got last year but never got around to playing it. Dodged a bullet there.

Surkov, that's a bad excuse to not play a great game. Get over it and enjoy one of the best superhero games ever made.

Hmm.. that's an odd reason 
 
but hey, annoyances are annoyances. I recommend you try some more, if you can't, you can't !

You could do it only for the demo mode. Once the final retail version was released, they removed the ability to patch in different costumes, which is a bummer because there were some really cool ones.

Towards the end the cape has so many rips you'll be alright. :P
Also, Detective Vision, son.

I hardly ever even noticed the cape. It was just sorta part of Batman.

I remember that when I played the demo the camera angle bothered me too.
 
So don't worry, you're not alone!

Wow... Weirdest reason ever for not being able to play this game, at least as far as I have read.

I hear ya, I couldn't play Portal 2 because the Portal Gun was .2 inches farther to the right than I like, and I was tired of looking at it.

Is this fucking thread for real?

#24 Posted by DrPockets000 (2859 posts) -

I feel similar about Uncharted 2.  Precision aiming just made everything too big and completely broke the fucking game.

You can only customize Batman in the demo, not the full game.

There's a tiny part of me that understands this complaint. 
Not so much the size of it, but the hypnotizing power of it. 
 
Still, I couldn't put it down right to the end.

I noticed the cape in tighter spaces from time to time but nothing to this extent! PC mods are a good compromise for the costume!

This. OP is a fool. What would Batman be without his cape?!

The only time the cape ever really got in the way for me was when you were gliding. I loved the game and this seems like a pretty silly reason not to play it.

This is the stupidest reason I have ever heard for not playing a game, you sir have an irrational fear of capes.

#32 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5156 posts) -

The cape physics in this game are second to none, I don't understand how can anyone have a problem with the cape.

Send me your copy then so I can have twice the Batman.
