This is a shameful self bump that I will only do once!

Odonnell435: Just a little tip, if you are unable to open the magazine file then try changing the .file extension between either .CBR or .CBZ and it should help fix the problem. This rarely happens though so don't worry.
CBR and CBZ files are actually .RAR and .ZIP files. (Only the file extensions have been renamed). (CB7 is, you guessed it, a 7z file with renamed extension).

You can view the contents of any CBR/CBZ/CB7 files by renaming the file extension to .RAR/.ZIP/.7z and then opening with your favourite decompression program. (BTW I recommend: 7z (freeware), WinRar (shareware - but there is a free extract only version)

What I am saying is - that if your comic reader refuses to read a CBR file, rename the extension to .RAR, extract the contents to a folder, compress the folder to a ZIP and then rename the file extension from .ZIP to .CBZ. Voila! Your comic reader should now accept the file! :) (Not all comic readers accept CB7 and CBR. Almost all should accept CBZ)

huh, you learn something new everyday.
Every issue of Computer Gaming World from the 1st issue in 1981, to the last issue in 2006, is available for free download in PDF format from the CGW Museum. I loved this mag, and keep a healthy dose of these PDFs on my tablet to read at lunch. Nobody covered the industry and trade shows as deeply as CGW... a lot of great PC and gaming history there. Great tips, strategies, and walkthrus for a lot of the GOG games are on here too.

Wow this looks nice. I'm always interested in retro computer game magazines. Thanks for the find Tritone! I'll add this website to the first post for others to enjoy!
Heh, it's pretty interesting to read the first article in that first 1981 issue of CGW about the future of wargames. 30 years ago they were still worried that software piracy was going to destroy the gaming market -- and here we all still are.

Would you call that irony?

Piracy.... piracy never changes.
