I'm not sure if I should hug or hit duckroll, the NeoGAFfer who decided a month or so ago to start a series of monthly/bi-monthly discussion threads dedicated to "unique JRPGs which are significantly different from the norm in all areas."
Although I'd like to hug him for introducing me--in "JRPG Spotlight Vol. 1"--to the Westone-developed, Enix-published Dark Half, which was released for the Super Famicom in 1996, for instance, I'd like to hit him for the very same reason. After all, if I'd never heard of said game, I wouldn't have spent more minutes (OK, hours) than I'd care to admit reading about, staring at screenshots of and watching videos of it.
I've yet to spend much time with volumes two and three--which shine a light on Radia Senki/Radia Wars Chronicle and Emerald Dragon, respectively--but I plan to do just that sooner rather than later. At the very least, I hope to get through them before volume four shows up.
