I’m not going to lie: until the Microsoft E3 2017 press conference, I’d nearly forgotten that Ooblets was a thing. I vaguely recalled the game being inspired by Animal Crossing, Pokemon, and Harvest Moon.  All titles I appreciate, and two of which I managed to get horribly…

Undertale‘s official merchandise distributor, Fangamer.com, has just updated their available swag. We knew there’d be new shirts, but the tarot cards pre-orders for Undertale figurines were a welcomed surprise, along with the long awaited Toriel Plush. Interestingly enough, for $1, there’s an “enhanced version.” While it may sound…
