This has got to be one of the funniest things I've ever read. Good job Marion.

Gawd, I laughed until cried. Then I read it again, laughed some more, cried a little. Then I hugged my iPad.
I hear they have an app in the iStore for that now.

The only thing more horrifying than the fact that this story is probably true is Marion Cox's eating habits.

I have no sympathy for Infinity Ward Heads(maybe some employees). They were deliberately going against their contract with Activision by arranging meeting with EA. You can't expect Activision was going to stand there and not do anything.

I only escaped by hopping on a janitor's cart. I was unwittingly pushed out of the building by my savior, a Mexican guy whose nametag read, "Jesus."
Absolutely brilliant! I laughed so hard I squirted my Whey Protein/Goose Fat/Maple Syrup/Chunky Monkey/Creme de menthe breakfast 'power' smoothie all over my keyboard!

Oh mate, I am drunk enough to actually believe this. I really should stop reading these kind of articles before I start a socialist movement against IW.

You seriously never fail to take current news and weave a freaking hilarious story out of it, after seeing this, I must go back and read all of your articles I never read, this is only the 3rd I've read

Entertaining, I suppose. More so because I wasn't sure if it was real news at first.
Not having had enough sleep lately does that.

WTF? I don't get this guy's column. I understand that it's fiction, at least I hope it is, then why is it posted as a news article on the Escapist? Bah, I suppose to best answer is "Don't read it if you don't like it."
Don't believe a word of anything Marion says. What little truth he relates isn't worth worrying about. And really, his articles are extremely hit or miss. I would say this on tops my list, along with LOL, your DPS is fail [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/reliable-source/7031-Reliable-Source-LOL-Your-DPS-Is-Fail]

Hehe, I thought that was real for a moment, but then again with the way IW's been going I wouldn'tbe suprised if it was.

This sounded like a Tom Clancy-esqe take-over.
Just you wait till Kotick is commanding a Stealth Bomber on Infinity Ward's HQ with his LIVE headset.

Hilarious as always Marion. With the way things are going at Activision and the Infinity Ward fiasco, I wouldn't be surprised if Kotick was getting like that. Bye bye cash-cow!
Same here, it could actually tring some truth in the article.

Hilarious as always

It's not a news article, if it was, it'd be in the news room. It's just a plain old article.

It was probably a promo thing or something, but this guy 'escaped' and never found out. Good story either way
You can't honestly believe any of that was true, lol
Why not it's Bobby Kotick we are talking about here.
