Rename?[edit]

I really dislike when titles of articles are seperated only by capital letters. I think it would be better to rename this Computer and Video Games (magazine) or something to that effect and turn this into a redirect to computer and video games mentioning the magazine at the top of that article. Anybody have a comment or suggestion about this? K1Bond007 02:51, Jun 7, 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, I was looking at this article a coulple days ago and I thought it wasn't the right choice. Thunderbrand 04:17, Jun 7, 2005 (UTC)
Done. I agree with your suggestion. ╬╬ 25 chatter 08:33, 10 July 2005 (UTC) ╬╬

Editors[edit]

Can anyone out there provide a list of C+VG editors and what periods they held the position? - Diceman 18:10, 1 September 2005 (UTC)

ISSN[edit]

Somebody requested the ISSN for this magazine. The October 1998 issue (#203) lists 0261-3597, which does not pass the test at ISSN. It is probably a misprint, because the June 1990 issue (#103) lists 0261-3697, which does pass the test. Thought I'd document this here to avoid confusion. 82.210.116.156 18:42, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

(Notice included here to get attention of unbiased cross-section of potentially interested parties. TfDs and this template don't seem to get much attention on their own, but this template appears in lots of articles.) Fourohfour 13:27, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Cartoon[edit]

there was (?) a cartoon periodically published in the '80s about a team of robots that was set in the future... i think one of them was called 'big red'...does anyone have any info on this ? Boomshanka 06:28, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

This is where the arcadian ice man is king from Phoenician Empire... ?Holographic progress? [hibernate!]... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.138.235.252 (talk) 13:49, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

It rings a bell. I remember the artwork have a 2000AD quality. I think the name was something like Lieutenant Law or Lieut Law. I remember it looking very vivid but being impossible to follow, because the art was so stark and detailed. (googles) The whole thing is available as a set of scans here at World of Spectrum. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 14:32, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

"the artwork have", were you drunk? For the record, and in case the link dies, it was The Bug Hunters by Jerry Paris with Pedro Henry (actually Steve Moore and Garry Leach. It was first published in 1986 and some, perhaps all of the strips were collected in 1990 by Trident Comics, but the company folded in 1992 so good look finding a copy. Doesn't seem to have an ISBN. Page 76 features a ninja woman in lingerie beheading a giant robot with a flying kick, which goes to show that comics have not changed much in the past quarter-century. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 18:50, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
"good look finding a copy", were you drunk? Chaheel Riens (talk) 16:50, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
The strip was rife with spelling & grammatical errors as well. Whoever did the lettering got almost every instance of "didn't" wrong, with "did'nt" instead, and other variations of the theme "was'nt", "are'nt" etc. Chaheel Riens (talk) 17:06, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

NEEDS HELP NOW[edit]

when a publication that has been around since 81, has a picture from a GTA4 game on it's front page.. something is amiss. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.35.241.206 (talk) 03:07, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. Article now has a cover image from 1983 - in 't old days, and kept the GTA4 image, from the new era. a_man_alone (talk) 12:29, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

[edit]

Should somebody upload the C+VG Hit logo? We could use it in multiple places http://www.worldofspectrum.org/showmag.cgi?mag=C+VG/Issue098/Pages/CVG09800019.jpg — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.175.37.100 (talk) 21:21, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Is there a list of titles that were Game of the Month?

  • Support - Makes sense to combine with CVG article. - X201 (talk) 08:11, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Support - .com is just a continuation of the C&VG life. Chaheel Riens (talk) 09:56, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Merging these two things into one entry is a very bad idea and factually innacurate. C&VG the magazine closed over 7 years ago, Computer and Video Games.com the web site is an ongoing and very successful web site, and always had a very distinct point of difference from the magazine. I've tried to re-edit this article several times - as the author the original CVG.com entry. It really make this article supremely innacurate to treat magazine and web site as the same thing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.167.143.229 (talk) 13:54, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Late to the party, but Support. Same name, essentially the same publication and both will currently easily fit into one (short) article. The "very distinct point of difference" hasn't been shown by any sources or content. bridies (talk) 03:37, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
