Our sympathies to the Elden Ring subreddit as FromSoftware is a no-show at Gamescom

As the few surviving optimists on r/EldenRing point out, only 27 days until Tokyo Game Show.

To quote my favorite inspirational post of the day: 

"Whatever the outcome of the next few days, always remember what a special place this is. If our worst fears come true and we receive no news, persevere. Remember, you aren't alone, we're all in this together. We will get through to the other side. Now, join me as we move head-first into the breach!"

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter and Tested before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games.

When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
