Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity review (PS2)
29 March 2015
Excerpt: Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity is a relatively standard turn-based strategy game that, if nothing else, serves as a decent introduction to the genre. It offers nothing particularly special, but it is competently made and features a simple, easy to learn battle system that newcomers should...
Excerpt: With the exception of a slight misstep involving a fishing title, Atlus has really been on a tear as of late. Stella Deus: The Gates of Eternity is Atlus’ latest entry into the Strategy RPG genre, and continues Atlus’ streak of fun, quality SRPGs.

Lord Dignus, self-appointed Overlord of Fortuna, sends forth the Imperial Legion to put a quick end to their apathy and eliminate this “weakness” from...
Excerpt: Well, what do you know? The makers of Hoshigami: Running Blue Earth are back with a new tactical RPG. For those of you that don’t remember Hoshigami, it was a decent, but critically panned RPG for the PSX that was best known for instituting a “Dead Means Dead” policy.
