I've always wanted to imprison my friends in a Devil in the White City-style Murder Castle, so I'm happy to see that The Sims 4 has a much a improved sim customization tool. Wait, no I haven't. Someone else must've written that. Weird. Anyway, The Sims 4 does has a powerful sim customization tool that looks great for creating likenesses of real people, and this new trailer demonstrates its direct manipulation tools with sims based on the development team.

I look forward to making the PC Gamer team, though it might be boring watching them play CS:GO and Hearthstone all day. I'm definitely not going to imprison them in The Winchester Mystery House (opens in new tab) and torment them with voodoo dolls to see who breaks first.

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.
