    What's your "white whale" game that you may never play?

    Hey PC gamers and welcome back to the chat log! This week Mollie and I dragged in our Tyler Colp to collectively admit to our genre sins. We call ourselves fans and yet we've still never played that one classic deep cut in our catalog. This isn't about the crushing threat of your massive backlog...

    What's the first PC game you remember playing?

    Hey PC gamers and welcome back to another week in the chat log. This week Mollie and I decided to take a little stroll back through our childhood to talk about some of the earliest PC games we can remember playing. For us, that means the late '90s and early 2000s, a golden era for edutainment...

    Who's your favorite pawn you've hired in Dragon's Dogma 2?

    Welcome back PC gamers to another week in the chat log. It's been a week since Dragon's Dogma 2 launched and it feels like tons of our team, and readers, have been playing. So this was a good week to dedicate to talking with our absolutely dauntless RPG reviewer and online editor Fraser Brown...

    Which game launcher are you only using because you have to?

    Hey PC gamers, apologies for the delayed forum post this week—I was away at GDC last week! But while I was gone, last week's episode was all about game launchers. Our senior editor Robin Valentine recently undertook the daunting task of reviewing game launchers for 2024. His conclusion? Yeah...

    Do you hate the "yellow paint on ledges" trick in games or does it have its place?

    Hey there PC gamers and welcome back to another week of Chat Log that's based on social media discoursing. We try not to spend our time debating on Twitter, but we can't help rehashing some of the usual topics among ourselves at least. Recently the conversation about "yellow paint" came up again...

    Does getting really good at a game ruin the fun for you?

    Hey PC gamers, welcome back to another week of the chat log podcast. This week Mollie and I are talking with Morgan Park about the dubious honor of getting good. Now, I don't know if I've ever been genuinely good at a game in my life but these two both have experience climbing ranks and getting...

    Do you rock a full size keyboard or have you downsized to tenkeyless?

    Hey PC gamers, welcome to another week in the dangerous customization rabbit hole. This week Mollie and I dragged our senior hardware editor Jacob Ridley out to talk shop about building and customizing mechanical keyboards. I never thought I'd be a person who wanted to get that granular about my...

    Which unconventional game genre name will you actually defend?

    Hey PC gamers, this week Mollie and I chose violence by inviting Harvey to talk to us about game genres. It sounds innocent enough, until someone asks what "cRPG" stands for or why "ARPG" and "action RPG" aren't the same thing. Heaven forbid we ask whether "soulslike" is a genre. This is a topic...

    What makes you want to write or read a Steam review?

    Hey again PC Gamers, Mollie and I are back this week with a laid back show and tell episode. This time we're quizzing one another on games from the PC Gamer Top 100 from last year by reading off Steam reviews! Pull up the list for yourself and see if you can guess these games faster than Mollie...

    What's your favorite Steam Next Fest demo this week?

    Hey PC Gamers and welcome back to another demo extravaganza week. The Steam Next Fest is back on again and it always feels like this February edition is the one where I get to set aside the most time to try things. There's still time to jump in as it runs through February 12 and often times...

    Do you play games portably or are you a desktop gamer only?

    Hey PC Gamers, this week Mollie and I brought on our Associate Editor and Steam Deck OLED review writer Tyler Colp to talk to us about the Deck lifestyle. Mollie and I both wound up buying ourselves Steam Decks over the holiday and we're already finding our own ways to incorporate them into our...

    What's your favorite game to watch speedruns of?

    Hey PC Gamers, did any of you watch Awesome Games Done Quick last week? Because Mollie and I brought on our colleague Ted Litchfield to talk about speedrunning. None of us are speedrunners of course (except that brief period Mollie spent as a top 10 Solitaire speedrunner IYKYK) but we all really...

    What's the best (or worst) tutorial in a game you've played?

    Hey PC Gamers, thanks again to everyone listening and especially to those of you who came to talk with Mollie and I here last week! It was really encouraging to hear that some of you have been following along all last year and we're psyched to be hanging out in our very own forums again. This...
