Days behind here, I know, but there are some pretty cheap solutions to the camera issue. You could do what I did with my BunnyCam, which is buy a cheap IP camera (ranging from $50 to $300 depending on what resolution/quality you want) and set it up to automatically trigger. Mine's a cheap $70 Foscam model that has motion detection and will e-mail me pictures whenever it detects motion. It's also remotely accessible and controllable via web/tablet/iPhone, though your internet might limit you somewhat with that.

I also use free software (iSpy) to record video whenever it detects motion, which is how I captured most of the videos on that youtube playlist. The software lets you automatically upload to YouTube if you want, though you could just have it save it on an external or network drive if your internet connection isn't great.

There are also some for-pay services that will automatically do all of that for you in the cloud. They're usually less than $100 a year. While I was looking into them, I stumbled across a story about how someone caught an intruder/theft with that sort of setup, and turned the footage over to the police, leading to the intruder's capture and conviction.

There were one or two that I decided to re-cut because I noticed after the fact that I had strung things together out of order or some such. For some reason Youtube didn't always remove them from the playlist when I attempted to do so.

Translation: "I'm not saying I want another Sandy Hook massacre, but I really want another Sandy Hook massacre." Sick bastard.

In other gun related news (somewhat), Fox News is defending (or at least not condemning) a comment made by a contributor that Satanists should be rounded up and shot.

The fact that anyone takes anything Fox News says seriously let alone pays attention to them at all boggles my mind.

Bit of background: My mother is re-married, and her husband has a daughter which has 2 boys herself, the eldest being 10.

I like the kid in general, but he actually, flat-out asked for GTA5 for his Holiday gift. I think I facepalmed right through my face when my mother admitted buying it and neither her, not the mother saw anything wrong with that.

So, I saw the Fox News bit, and immediately (mis)read Satanists as Scientists.

Whoops. :lol:

I think I might be misunderstanding what you are saying, so please correct me wher eI'm wrong;

Boy of 10 asks (wishes?) for GTAV for xmas (or equivalet) present. Your mother (the kids step grandmother) bought said present for him.

The issue is?
(is this about rating? becaus earound here D3 for PS3 was apparently all the rage for my sons agegroup.. the 9 year olds, I boggled at first, then rethought and said to myself "hey, without as much blood, its actually tamer than evening news - especially when you don't understand what they are talking about and just use dit as a progressive beat'em'up")

You get the gist of it. Addentum is that having played the thing, even though it isn't *horrible* per se, it's still blunt enough to not be for everyone. I'd actually say Diablo 3 wouldn't be the perfect model to compare: I looked up the PEGI rating - 16+ with Realistic Violence warning. From memory, the game is fairly bloody and grim, but that's pretty much it: you see hurt/dead people + bad monsters = you apply gratuitous violence to Evil.

Just to help me discuss it, have you done a playthrough of GTA 5? (I haven't done any other, so I don't have a base of comparaison with other versions). If not, I'd suggest looking for Trevor's intro, the torture story, and the 'Fresh Meat' mission to get an idea of what they chose to show.

As an aside, I chuckled when I realized PEGI hadn't pegged the game for sex-related content. I actually wonder what is needed to get *that* warning.

My point in favour of buying the game to the boy is, do videogames "really" have that much more violence than what he can just see on TV or on internet by himself?

Be honest.
