While watching numerous videos and interviews from GDC about OnLive, a question was asked about how exactly the brag clips work. The best part about it is that you don’t have to press a record button before you do something. All you need to do is press a button and it will automatically save the previous 15 seconds or so of gameplay. This is very neat and useful because it’s usually impossible to predict when you are about to do something “brag worthy” in a video game. The way this is setup is that if you perform something amazing, all you have to do is press a button and it will automatically save what just happened into the brag clips section of your account.
I think this is a great way to capture awesome moments in video games, because very few games today allow you to record gameplay and share them. With OnLive, you will be able to record gameplay from any game on their service and you will be able to do so AFTER you pull off something amazing. Gamers can then share these clips with friends and others online.
I always do things that are cool in games. I’m a gamer. It’s what I do. But I can never save any of these moments. They are already lost with time. OnLive is my savior. With brag clips, I can brag. And not just brag, I can be Sir Gloats alot.
Theres also a lot of possiblity for creating montages, if you can upload clips to your computer.
