I'd like to create a video showing a side-by-side comparison. Now I've just installed FRAPS and after about 5 minutes of record time I'm at 2GB of used space. Any tips how to decrease the amount of space used?

They just take away the challenge. Imagine a deep chasm and you see a special item on a tiny floating platform. You have to fly down there carefully or you fall to your doom. If you had a blob shadow you could just jump down and position yourself directly on top, skipping the flying altogether. The joy of getting to the item through skill is lost.

Hmm I somehow see how people consider them as necessary. I think Playtonic thought about this anyway. All I hope is that it doesn't look out of place with the regular shadows, IF they really put blob shadows in that game...

It's more like giving a racer auto-drive, and an RPG a gps.
