29 Dec 2020 GfW now available!
I've been meaning to do this for years, but I finally added the entire (short-lived) run of Games for Windows: The Official Magazine to the Museum. The 17 issues are now available in text searchable .PDF format. Happy holidays!

On another note, we recently passed 1 million CGW Museum visitors since its opening. Cool!
28 June 2020 Still here after 16 years
It's 2020 and we're still here - over 16 years and nearly 1 million visitors after the opening of the CGW Museum. Cool! I wish I had more time for the site, and even more importantly, new content to add. On that topic, if you have anything CGW-related or if you worked for CGW, please e-mail! But otherwise... people still seem to be enjoying the content. It would be nice to do a website refresh, but realistically that's not happening in the near future. If you're reading this, don't hesitate to write and say hello though!
1 February 2016 Website update
My apologies for the recent two week or so website outage, as I was working through some coding upgrades due to changes from my service provider. Everything should now be back to normal - let me know if you notice any problems.

All that said, as we approach the 10th anniversary of the opening of the CGW Museum, I am reminded that it runs on a rather old code base (itself borrowed from a friend's application, as I'm not that proficient with PHP!). Furthermore, it would also be great to update the look of the site. Is there anyone out there able and willing to help with developing a new site for the Museum? If so, please send me a note!
4 January 2014 Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to all CGW Museum visitors. As you have likely noticed, there hasn't been a whole lot of change here since mid-2012. Honestly, with the completion of scanning the entire CGW run, there isn't likely to be a whole lot of change in the future either! Perhaps at some point I'll add the GFW issues, but otherwise, unless someone comes up with some interesting new information about CGW... there isn't a whole lot more to add. That said, the magazines will remain available as valuable digital resources! And if you do have ideas or information that might be useful, well, please e-mail! Have a great 2014!
22 July 2013 Tim Finkas passes away
I've just received the sad news that after a nearly two year battle with pancreatic cancer, Tim Finkas, the original cover artist, graphic designer, and layout editor of CGW has passed away. Tim created every cover of CGW up to #26, with the exception of 4.4, 5.5, and 25. You may remember this interview that I did with Tim nearly ten years ago, in which he explains his start with the magazine, his thoughts on many of the covers, and much more. If you've already read it, it's worth another look, and if you haven't, you're missing out on some very interesting CGW material - head on over for a read.

Our thoughts are with his family in these difficult times. Thanks Tim, for your friendliness, creativity, and amazing talent.
