RSS Feed | Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Direct download

*Soothing voice* Hello and welcome back to the PC Gamer Chat Log podcast. Why am I talking like this today? Well, Lauren and I are getting our warm fuzzy blankets out and perfecting our mood lighting to talk about the cozy gaming trend, the most relaxing and calming of all videogame trends.

Is there a difference between wholesome games and cozy games? What are the wildest 'cozy' gaming recommendations we've seen on TikTok? We also continue our fascination with cooking in games by discussing whether cooking is cozy, and offer up our own recommendations on the ultimate comfort games to play on a rainy evening. Lauren attempts to convince me that cozy horror is a genre without offering any proof, so I'm looking to you wonderful listeners to drop your own recommendations for us!

It wouldn't be an episode of Chat Log without Lauren and I getting together at the start to talk about what we've been up to this week. We talk about how our brief Minecraft Legends coop session went, and some quick thoughts about how we enjoyed (or didn't) enjoy the game as Minecraft lovers. You can also check out Lauren's Minecraft Legends review, if you want some more concrete criticisms.

Mollie Taylor
Features Producer

Mollie spent her early childhood deeply invested in games like Killer Instinct, Toontown and Audition Online, which continue to form the pillars of her personality today. She joined PC Gamer in 2020 as a news writer and now lends her expertise to write a wealth of features, guides and reviews with a dash of chaos. She can often be found causing mischief in Final Fantasy 14, using those experiences to write neat things about her favourite MMO. When she's not staring at her bunny girl she can be found sweating out rhythm games, pretending to be good at fighting games or spending far too much money at her local arcade.
