Record of Agarest War: Mariage Review (PC)

Maidens, Monsters, Magic, and Marriage? Don’t threaten me with a good time!     Record of Agarest War, the strategic role-playing series with dating sim elements. It seems like it has been quite a while since we have gotten a game from this series, in the US. It has…
