I just made some Team Fortress 2 items, so this is pretty interesting to me.

So is this the original or did you have to tape it again?

Which ones? As a guy who plays too much TF2, let's see if I have any of yours.

Ha. Funny enough I was just looking at that in the Workshop. I really like the look of it. Nice work.

YOU DON'T HATE THE BEAR-DERHOSEN?! I'm sorry about all the bad things I've said about you, Brad.

It's the original, I futzed around with it a good bit in Audacity and got it sounding decent. In the future I'll probably use a better mic than the dinky gaming headset this one was recorded on.

I am super pumped to finally hear this. The stuff people can do with marketplace and the such like is really cool. The idea that item creators can make a living from it is really neat. Now if only I had the art skills and ingenuity to design some cool gear myself...

@kowalo That's a cool design, a new Engie PDA would be great to see.

@brad: thx for letting me know. I think that was for the best, trying to re-tape with the same Qs would have been awkward I imagine.

Excellent work Brad. Also, that jam at the beginning. Man that's good. Sounds like a lost Sonic level or something

@brad you need to record / sell some audiobooks STAT.

Brad, your voice is somehow way more awesome when you're just talking to yourself. And here I didn't think it could get any better. You should do these more often. Of better yet, start your own Jar Time-esque series.

isn't is quite difficult to get an item added to the official store? as in, there's a lot of competition?

There are a lot of items on the workshop. And Valve hasn't added any community items (barring the recent community-only robo hat update.) in a while now.

I second this man's suggestion.

How long's the video? When I click play, it says it starts at 0:00 but it cuts right into him talking about item drops.

@zero_: 35min. & that's the beginning of the audio (i think)

I hear a lot of mouse clicking in the second half of the interview. Brad, are you playing Dota while doing this? :D

Didn't know much of anything about custom gear in DOTA before this. Very informative and fun to learn about. Thanks Brad!

Ok GB, that is the theme song for the dumptruck, right there. You even got the correct backing up sounds! Don't change a thing.
