Notch only just arrived in the county on a suborbital jet from Sweden, but he's already started designing a three-sided paradise that's greener than the water in Robert Bowling's Hepatitis Seas. There's little to see at this early stage, but the county office will send inspectors to Notchtopia regularly—or just as soon as the 20 minute long red light at the region's border finally turns green, too.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley during the rise of personal computers, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early PCs 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. His hobbies include amateur boxing and adding to his 1,200-plus hours in Rocket League.
