[citation][nom]11796pcs[/nom]Only a matter of time before I start kissing Valve's toe when they allow for FRAPS-like recording through Steam.[/citation]
It's working great for the Source engine, it'll be neat when they figure out how to get a method to work with all games.
[citation][nom]cold fire[/nom]I'd rather games include a theater mode similar to the one in the Halo games on the 360. It doesn't require much space or resources and you get record clips in a free-roam camera mode.[/citation]
Oh, do you mean a recording mode that almost all games have? Sorry but that only records scripted movies. If you want a real video file you have to use resource hungry methods.
more like gratis, it's definitely not free when i HAVE to play it while steam is running, hogging my resources and restricting my every move with drm bs. Sorry, but you're using the word 'free' all wrong!
