Okay, Radiant Historia has unfurled itself to me as some kind of sick RPG take on Shadow of Destiny. I reach the first “junction” they tell me I must travel through in order to find a path through time where the world doesn’t end. I check the time book and under the nodes see “four out of 236 nodes found”. With further research I discover this includes all the sidequests I MUST complete in order to get the true end.

Sheeeit. It’s either this or Okamiden, and this is already experiencing vintage markups.
