monstrum-header

Vince returns for one final video look at Monstrum, which you can read his written preview of here.

July 24, 2014 in Humour, Videos

Last month I attempted to grind my way to the top of the Ranked Ladder in Hearthstone. The plan was to document this climb through videos, and show them to the world. Unfortunately, I got stuck at rank 12, a month passed and the ladder reset. But I am not one to take defeat lying down.
