    I know nowadays it's common for a game to have a mode where you can view your games and record moments. I hope FOC will have it. Think about the uses. We could have some awesome machinimas using it like with Halo.

    So do you want a theater mode in FOC?

    Yes. I would love to record some of my better games and view them from time to time.

    YES. i remember people talking a lot about this during the release of WFC but couldn't make a viable machinima movie because the guns are still in the arms, it's always on 3rd person view. it would be great to have theater mode, make some movie with it, and be able to upload your movies on Machinima or Youtube

    Sure why, not? ...on second thought, if the cinematics aren't all that great, never mind. WFC has some that didn't look at that great the second time around:( 

    I REALLY hope HMS steps up on their cinematics this time around, as I want to play campaign mode again and again and watch a great story unfold as I play:)

    If this game has a lot of cutscenes, like for example the console Kingdom Hearts games, then yes. If they're only going to have a two second intro and outro and a few seconds in each mission like WFC, forget it.

    I dont think you two get the idea. It's not like a cutscene viewer, more like a replay of a game and camera movement

    With actual gameplay retelling the story? In that case, no. I'd rather just play the game. Other game's that have used theater mode play a compilation of pre-rendered animation, which is why we thought as much. I've never seen a game that replays the game's story with different camera POV. I don't know if I could sit through that.

    I would make a machinima given theater mode. So I have to say yes.

    A theater mode is recording game play in more detail than cust capturing the video. For example it would record a multiplayer match. You get killed by some guy who speeds away. In theater mode you could watch everything that happens in the map so you could see the speedy guy kill you and follow him as he continues to show off his leet skills.

    YouTube Reach theater mode if you are still confused by the topic.
