Tyler "Thiradell" Wishall is currently a student at Missouri State University, majoring in Theatre with a focus on Acting.

Tyler joined The Elite at the end of 2006 and began competing for fast times in GoldenEye (and also a little in Perfect Dark). After awhile he cracked the Top 100 in the GoldenEye ranks, and managed to peak at 67th. He never got a World Record but is one second off of several (Dam Agent 0:54, Runway Agent 0:23, Runway Secret Agent 0:24, Bunker 1 Agent 0:18, Archives Agent 0:17, Streets Agent 1:14). He then played PD briefly and managed two Duel WRs and some good Chicago times (0:16/0:33/0:34) before taking a break from Rare FPSes. In 2009, Tyler had a brief stint as GE/PD updater, but had to step down due to getting a new computer which had an operating system that was incompatible with the updater program. He handed the reins to Axel Zakrisson, and the two of them continue doing proof calls and discussing issues together. Other N64 games he enjoys playing include Mario Kart 64, Bomberman 64, Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Tyler then took interest in quite a few GCN games, with Metroid Prime and Madden NFL 2004 occupying quite a bit of his time. He currently owns about 40 GameCube games and has played everything from Viewtiful Joe to Tales of Symphonia to X-Men Legends to Animal Crossing! His favorite game on this system will always be Super Mario Sunshine, in which he currently has the World Record speedrun (100% run rejected :(). He'd like to give shoutouts to Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for being the most interesting, unique experiences he had on the GameCube.

Moving on from there, Tyler purchased an XBox 360 and proceeded to revel in current-gen technology. He chiefly enjoys Gears of War, Mass Effect and Guitar Hero on this system, but he's played a fairly wide range here too. His most impressive Achievements would be:

  • Completing Gears of War on Insane (and Gears of War 2 co-op)
  • Completing BioShock on Hard
  • Finishing Assassin's Creed (the WHOLE thing. It was boring but I got it done)
  • Completing Through the Fire and Flames on Expert
