“Oh no, don’t you worry, Mr. Bigglesworth! I won’t let anyone harm you this time!”

Hearthstone patch 18.0 went live earlier today in preparation for the upcoming Scholomance Academy expansion and even though some die-hard fans of Kel’Thuzad were disappointed to see that the uber-powerful wizard’s faithful pet, Mr. Bigglesworth didn’t make it to card form, the feisty feline will still be making an appearance in some form after all: in Battlegrounds mode.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
