Getting back on topic, I finished Radiant Historia and I was truly blown away by the story. I won't spoil anything, but there is a "true" ending that can be obtained by finishing 10 specific side quests throughout the game. If it is at all possible, I highly recommend it, because it ties up the loose ends rather well. It's been awhile since I've been moved by an ending like this, and felt like it was necessary to at least inspire anybody who is still working towards the end. I don't believe a game like this will receive a sequel, but I do hope that this developer will continue making great games and writing great stories. I'll have to recommend this game to anybody who is a fan of classic RPGs, owns a DS, and is a fan of time-traveling stories. If you do not qualify for these characteristics, then I still recommend the game to you.  :P

Actually, even with the true ending, it's still open for a sequel, but it doesn't really need one.  I have the same conflicting feelings with this game like with Legend of Dragoon: I want more, but I don't want it to be tarnished with a bad sequel.
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.


Aww!  You have the Sword of Hugging +3!  All of your attacks deal affectionate damage!

I completely agree. Although the ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, I think the resolution is implied. Like, with the true ending:

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

It sounds like a "happily ever after" to me, but there could be room for a new scenario. A new cast of characters, a new plot, but maybe set in the same world. If they do have a sequel made, I hope they don't ruin it, because this game was truly better than I expected. I'd like the integrity of the game to remain untarnished as well.
