It may be dwarfed by the nearby New Tyblurg, but Whitta Vista is a profitable, no-nonsense grid with happy residents and room to grow. It's on the up-and-up, so why hasn't Mayor Whitta cracked a smile since he took office at city hall? Sources inside local government claim Whitta is fuming over disarray in the federal government, which has denied him reliable access to city management tools, calling the whole thing "catastrophically mismanaged."

He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now, and PS1 classic Bushido Blade (that's right: he had Bleem!). Tyler joined PC Gamer in 2011, 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.
