It was sarcasm, There is a lot there but not enough for an entertaining letsplay.

I watched your first one, very nice, what do you use to record because it looks a little out of focus if you know what I mean?

I started watching your latest video there and had a brief moment of panic when you pronounced the word as "heh-JIM-uh-nee", feeling certain that I've been mispronouncing it for the past 27 years, but I quickly looked it up and pronouncing it as "HEDGE-ih-MOH-nee" is also correct.

Crisis averted. Cool vids, by the way.

I use Fraps and Camtasia Studio.  Fraps for capture, Camtasia for compression and editing.

It's a very good Let's Play. I like your voice, and you're pretty thorough about the game mechanics.

The idea is that the various tech levels represent different - not "better" - ways to do things.

Seconded, though I only watched the last video. I have to admit though, it was a little painful halfway through with all the avoidable losses and not gaining anything from the battle due to not having enough marines to board the only onslaught that was boardable. If you care, you might want to be less stingy with command points in combat, keep a closer eye on the messages that pop up, and put a much higher priority on taking over the +30 FP objectives ASAP, with enough firepower to keep them held.

I do like how you edited out the extraneous bits and waiting periods in the video though.

just watched your first video.. noticed a lot of incorrect assumptions or info in general.. im sure you made it as soon as the 0.5a version came out so im willing to just let it all slide but i hope you make corrections in future videos.. if you made some or all of them in video 2. which im letting buffer atm. then more power to ya and forget what i said here :)

You won't be able to refit fighters and bombers at all. They're designed/balanced around having a particular set of weapons and would be very broken if you could change it. Which ones you pick for your fleet -out of quite a few that are available- is the choice here, not how they're outfitted.

Thanks for the feedback!  I record as I'm playing, so my attention is often split and I miss a lot of things that I might not have otherwise. I do appreciate you guys pointing out things I get wrong, though -- helps me make better videos next time around :D
