Tim is the Hearthstone expert at PC Gamer, but he isn't in Boston at PAX East. I'm in Boston at PAX East, so when I went to talk to game director Eric Dodds about Hearthstone's upcoming Blackrock Mountain adventure, I naturally consulted Tim for questions. Tim wrote a lot of questions. Tim wrote too many questions for me to ask, never mind memorize in 10 minutes—yet the show must go on, so I present to you: Tim Clark interviews Eric Dodds by proxy. It looks like me there at Blizzard's event last night, but it's actually Tim. Just squint a lot.

We (by which I mean Tim) have lots more questions about Hearthstone's new adventure, and we'll (Tim) will be getting more answers as soon as we (Tim) can.

Keep an eye out for our ASUS ROG G751 (opens in new tab) laptop giveaway after PAX East—we're collecting signatures from everyone we interview for a one-of-a-kind prize.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
