I'm playing it, everyones seriously raving about it. I don't know what's SO special about it yet, but I'll reserve judgement til I'm done.
Did you do the thing with Toriel yet?
Do you mean hitting Mercy until she lets me go through? Yeah. It was really obvious that that was what it wanted me to do (I think a frog also told me to do it, but I woulda figured that out myself). In JRPGs you petty much always should pick a non-violent path if you are given a choice. Forgive every murderer, befriend every ruffian, all that jazz.
These two skeleton dudes are pretty funny though.
