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."

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.
