What do you mean being a joke?
I still don't see the downsides of having an abundance of hats for customization...
I personally don't give a crap about customization, it adds nothing to a game, but I can see that other like it, because they feel the need to express themselves, so it's ok that there is customization, however, I want the characters to have customization that they actually could wear, and that doesn't include a parrot on top of rameses, a raptor or horse or whatever on drake's head, and many many more examples of ugly out of place looking crap, it makes the game look like a joke, and I wish there was a toggle in which I could turn customization off and would see all characters in their default clothes...
I think the hats are cool, you aren't forced to wear them & if someone chooses to wear them what's the prob?
I say ND should follow up on what they started, sell character items & what not for UC4 so they can give out the DLC maps free.
Alot of people will buy them & i'm sure they will make bank.
The hats are fine. The stats with them are not.
Well I don't really like the hats even without the stats.. Most of them don't fit in the Uncharted Universe, they should be stuck on a deserted island with Wetsuit Elena.
But I can live with them and kinda ignore it if I must.
I can't ignore the stats though, those things have broken game balance over and over.
