Please spoil Nier for me

I don't want to play this video game any more, but I want to know what happens. Where on the Internet can I find a plot summary of Nier?

I finished playing Nier the other night. I liked the game enough the first time through, but I really don't want to play through it again---the story is interesting and the characters are engaging, but the gameplay just isn't up my alley at all. But I do want to know what happens and how the story pans out.
Now, I knew before starting the game that the "full" story could only be unlocked by playing through the game multiple times. I figured I'd be able to find detailed spoilers online, but this turns out not to be the case---I can find walkthroughs and forum threads, but nothing that just says "here's what happens."
Am I bad at the google? Or did this game just not sell well enough to warrant that kind of attention?
I can find recordings of the relevant parts of the game on YouTube, but that's not ideal (I'd rather play the game than watch someone else play it). The Wikipedia has a detailed plot summary, but it doesn't extend to information gleaned from the second (and third, and fourth) playthroughs.
