Reliable Source: LOL, Your DPS Is Fail

Marion takes the bus, gets in a fight over World of Warcraft and nearly ends up in Guantanamo.

Read Full Article

Did they take Mr. Flask?

I have been steadily losing interest in your articles, Mr. Cox, but after reading of your latest adventure (well, perhaps not latest, or adventure...) my faith has been restored somewhat.
You have managed to make me laugh again, and for that I can thank you.
It was a most interesting tale. :D

"LOL, Your DPS Is Fail" is the best line in the whole article xD

May Mr.Flask be okay.

That was pretty good, haven't read this an awhile but it was quite funny.

Do you get internet priviledges for trading yourself for sex good behaviour?

What level is your shank skill at now?

The fact is, I had a step-brother who played WoW and spoke just like that. Notice I used the past tense, and my mother did not get a divorce. He literally played WoW 12 hours a day, stunk up the whole house. When we cut the internet to try and get him to shower, he left. Well, after three days of swearing, smashing stuff and leaving us all trapped in a smelly, internet-less house. Good Riddance, he's lucky I didn't choke him. Although that would've meant standing near him. ugh.

And hence, WoW is the worst thing the be produced by man in the last 10 years.

EDIT -- Someone kindly pointed out this was offensive to WoW Gamers. None meant guys. Even if WoW was somehow ACTUALLY responsible for my Step-brothers addiction, it still wouldn't be responsible for his hygiene.

And yeah, before you ask, my parents did try reasoning with and punishing him. He didn't care. If it wasn't WoW, he hated it.

Meh, I would normaly start defending wow but i can't be bothered and there doesn't seem to be much point to do it. when you come across that kinda guy who is that absorbed he uses in game terms in the real world, I use lol but a lot people i no do, then im not surprised on ur view of the game.

This is one of your funniest articals i have read :P keep up the work.

Ha, Marion. If you're going to ride the bus, you'd better drop some more points in the Close-Quarters Slap Combat skill. Noob.

Hey, it was funny to me, and that's what matters!

EDIT - nothin' to see here.

OT - I... I... Poor Mr. Flask :(

lol, great article

I haven't read the previous Reliable Source articles, but I'm hoping they are mostly works of fiction, if not I'm a bit disturbed...

LOL ur MMORPG is fail.

Also.... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOT MR. FLASKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

That is all, carry on.

I wish I could view the world (this one) through your eyes Marion. Maybe I'd be less bitter and jaded.

You did confirm one of my long-suspected assumptions; that only nerdy pubescent bus-riding trash plays WoW.

Oh dear, you came accross a WoW-nerd during a stressful trip? You poor poor sod.

I am a WoW Nerd myself, but talking about it with others outside of the game? Uhhh I'll pass thank you very much, it isn't worth trying to discuss it with people who probably think half the things you're saying are crazy and you yourself, are a crazy person who just won't shut up.

I apologize on behalf of this poor misled soul who just doesn't get that ingame should be left in game...

Also 'lol your dps is fail.' What, the hell is this guy on? ...And where can I buy it. Geez.

I think all you need to see the world like Marion is Mr. Flask. Mr Flask will guide you on your journey through life

You could replace the WoW related terms with pretty much any other interest specific hobby like a sport, cars, anime, comics, etc. and get the same effect.

Yeah, lol, a nice little article for life in general!

I, like other here hope that Mr. Flask is ok, on a side note i have always hated guild politics in WoW, one of the reason i stopped playing.

I agree. Completely hilarious when I read that line.

Oh man, that was hilarious. That really must have been a horrible trip on that day.
Once a guy next to me threw up on me and it wasn't that hilarious compared to this.

It's good to know that I'm not the only sane WoWer.

IT: Did Mr. Flask make it out okay? I don't know if a flask could survive in Guantanamo... I suspect it would get ugly... Oh, and I hope you're fine too.

Could have been a lot worse if you'd actually stabbed the dork. Still, no one can blame you for choking him, as I've seriously been tempted to do the same to people of his caliber. My own brother has just recently started playing WoW on a private server, so he's skirting that line, but not to the degree described in the story since he doesn't play on a public server. If he was, then I'm sure either he'd be getting choked out MMA-style or belted in the pie-hole any time he wanted to talk about WoW with me.

SOT - the WoW movie seems like the dumbest idea EVER!

can just picture some dude saying that

First time reading one of your articles, and it was very enjoyable.
Will definitely be looking for your articles in the future.
Anyone who is addicted to anything is annoying. I enjoy wow but in short bursts, and its the hard core players that keeps my hours short.
If you ever hear someone actually SAY "lol" or "noob", kindly knock some sense into that person.

Nice article, I really enjoyed reading it..what else? Oh yes, I nearly forgot: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAhaaaaa...*deep breath* hahahahaha..

You know the story your reading is special when your favorite character is an alchoholic container.

Dont die Mr. Marion, cuz my saturday mornings wont be as funny.

Oh wow... I think I've woken my flatmates laughing...

So when do you get out of the locker?

"What the fuck?"

Words cannot express how much I enjoy these travelogues. Definitely keep them up.

(Being an EX Addict with three 80s)
WoW has pretty much ruined it's self. Blizzard pretty much has been ignoring anyone not lvl 80 and now the you can be both sides on a pvp server, you gank one and their guild makes alts and trashes you in general chat or floods your mailbox with bile and death treats. The game is owned by the 13yr olds with imaginary epens and has long since ceased to be fun.

Kitchen-Knife-Terrorist? >_<
Whole nation is crazed...

A tip for the future: don't give Mr. Flask to strangers.
...besides, most people are jerks.

"If you've never fought with someone you're sitting next to you like I have, say on an airplane or in church, let me just say that the experience might be best characterized as awkward."

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA in CHURCH!
AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA ROLF.

Oh, I've been there man!
