He is not using the middle mouse button at all, nor any keys... ???

His narration is nice, but he plays like a newbie  ;D

Also he uses a version which has a bug, where the release of the left mousebutton is recognized as second click -> that is why he enters a building immediately when he enters the base...

Here part 3:

and 4:

He did not turn the camera once yet  :-\
Could someone with a youtube account give him some tips about also using keys, middle mousebutton and the other HUDs, please ? ::)

It is fun to see his excitement about the finished research and his disappointment when still no new scientists are available (end of Part 4).  :D
Also we can see how easy it is to miss a finished research <- we should improve that, a finished research should never be missed...

Also he complains about the controls being a pain sometimes, maybe someone should tell him about the battlescape gameplay move/move and shoot confirmations, so he won't missclick anymore...

In part 4 he already uses 1-8 to switch the soldiers. Maybe there is some hope  ;D

From those who complain about his playstyle... Are there videos of those, who can show "how to play" this game?

I don't know "how to play", that's why I'm asking.

His narration is nice, but he plays like a newbie  ;D

Also note that he has got TU reservation and reaction fire mixed up -- another sign that this part of UI needs redesign. (Which reminds me ...)

I also noticed that he didnt add any ECM or Armor to his aircrafts. And he didnt use his Saracen even if he has one. Also on part 5 his base is attacked and he had no soldiers at his base - which ereased it completly. Probably a warning if a ufo is going to attack the base a warning should appear if there no soldiers at the base? Which also leads me to that someone should really do some tutorial videos.
