    Eating worlds is pretty tasty. My Darkzero.co.uk review of Soul Nomad.

    Gig. That's pretty much all that needs to be said when someone speaks about Soul Nomad & the World Eaters (which we will call Soul Nomad from now on, as I'm kind of stuck for time, plus I'm now ruler of the world! Mwahah... Read Full Review
