back in the late nineties i used to buy a magazine called CVG i think it stood for computers and video games. but it came with a magazine within a magazine, i cant remember what that was called but it was like a news paper in color but black and yellow instead of black and white. if anyone knows if these are archived out on the net anywhere please let me no where. thanks

Oh yeah, I remember that. I used to get CVG every month. Best video games publication ever. It sucks that they stopped printing it. It's going to bug me all day now... What the hell was that called... It was black ink on yellow paper.

So late with this reply, but the mini-mag inside that set of CVG issues is called Freeplay.

It was one of the great things that happened to the magazine during the Paul Davies era of CVG.
One of my most loved trivia facts about it is that it actually cost them more to produce the yellow paper with just the black print on it, then it did for the regular pages of the magazine.
Even though Freeplay looked like a cheap "throw-away" section. :)
