  1. Do you troll in every news published on this site? Seems you are quite bored…
    Why don’t you go and play some fantastic games in your Playstation? And leave us alone while we enjoy other game consoles :)

  2. If you’re objective is to troll then I will let you be and have fun with what you want to do but once you start spamming to others with these delusions you have then I’ll do what I can to cure your insanity and prevent spreading it to others.

      Didn’t know this was an letter for the president …
      Didn’t know you hang the comments on your wall, sorry Xxx

      Let’s be real,
      You are a bully who insults and attack other people to shut them down.
      Honestly, you sound kinda mad and I can feel the rage in your writing.

      It’s also ironic that >Mister spelling God Mike< over here types,

      1) "troll" With a Caps On.
      2) break is with a "," in between and again troll with T.
      3) "a" news site is "an" News site.
      4) Epically pathetic … <—— Amazing spelling, Waw !
      5) but, hey, <—— 2 "," between but and hey 🤦‍♂️


  3. I hope this game sells well so that square knows ppl want games like these. Since it was sold out in Japan at least we can be sure it broke expectations

    1. You don’t even own a fucking game system, asshole! Secondly, stay salty because Octopath Traveler is a worldwide system seller.

      1. Sony First order ♕Grand Marshal♕

        No I don’t notice the PS4 sales, only notice that The first order officer is just a little boy with a large shadow.

        First day on the site and he already needs external force to get rid of me, what a fighter, lol.

        What a joke.

    1. Sony First Order ♕Grand Marshal♕

      Aren’t you the one reporting them ?
      You already broke role play today and if you could would dox full info here.

      I think you are saving your skin.

      Anyways, Playstation First Order clearly won today, since lot’s of reporting and censoring was needed, yet
      still waiting for that one, just one comment to prove anything we said wrong.

      It was also a good day for admin his wallet, since it’s been a long, long time we had sooooo many comments, likes,
      dislikes, reports, replies = page views.

      All thanks First Order PlayStation who unlike Nintendo drones doesn’t use Add block.
      Thanks, thanks a lot … yeah you’re welcome.

      You gonna miss me.

      1. Sony First order ♕Grand Marshal♕

        Ok, fair enough. I’ll trow the towel in the ring and call it a day.
        If you didn’t, I respect your courage and strong spirit, unlike the little rat-boys lurking here around.

      2. Sony First order ♕Grand Marshal♕

        This is it boys …
        My mission here is complete, you broke the spell.

        Shhhttttttt ….
        Come closer and let me whisper; I actually never owned a Sony device and only own Nintendo consoles.
        Have more than 1000 hours gaming on Switch, why you think I know so much about Botw.

        My body is dissolving, I’m gone soon,
        I made everyone stronger here,
        now you have grown strong defense against the real enemy.

        I know you guys, you know me, who am I really ?

        Uhhh, uuuu I’m

        … I’m


        Don’t …

        *Dead, gone forever.

      3. I’m going to give you guys the cheat code to winning this:

        Winners are the ones who spend their time playing fun video games. Losers are the ones who spend their time arguing about video games on the internet.

      4. Well now that the war is over, it’s time to come together and have some good sssSSS eee XXX,
        YEAH !!
        Any girls here ?

  4. You can tell how well the Switch and it’s games are doing by the number of moronic trolls appearing. It’s the marker of good health in video game terms unfortunately.

    1. Sony First order ♕Grand Marshal♕

      You go tell yourself that bro.
      I’m here the first day, so other 2 years Switch was dead ?
