Lately I have been making a bunch of videos for our YouTube channel. I’ve made videos about writing lunch notes, videos of reviews, movie trailer reaction videos and things like that and I am also making videos of playing video games. What I have here is the most current setup for all of that. I use my main latop to make the videos. My secondary laptop I use to run YouTube through my Elgato game capture device. It is the only way I know to be able to capture the video and sound at the same time as I watch it on screen. I’m working on making that a better system. I also have an XBox and a Nintendo Switch ready to go for captureing gameplay. I use my elgato with those devces as well. the TV is so that I have a large screen to use to see the games as I play them. I am looking to raise that up higher (over the top of my laptop screen when fully open, so that I can see the whole screen while I play and record. So many things happening.

Since I had last night off I was home and awake most of today. The kids and I got some video game time in, too. I’ve been writing an article about violence in video games. It is a what is acceptable and what is not. It was a hard topic to write about because this is a subjective thing. Some parents may look at me letting the kids play games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a violent game or playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as too violent. They are fighting games and there is a lot of action but to me they are not bad for the kids. We play together and have a great time. There are things I don’t want them to repeat and I tell them that. I’ll be expanding upon this idea in an upcoming post on The Toy Insider Parent Blog.
