| =======================================================================
| * NEW PUBLICATION OFFERED                                 Press Release
| =======================================================================
|
|
| Computer Publications, Unltd. (CPU) will soon be publishing GameTrader.
| GameTrader will cover the world of Video and Computer Games in a way
| that is so different and unique, you'll have to see it to really
| appreciate it.
|
| And for a limited time, you can have your name put on our mailing list
| so that you will receive the premier edition of GameTrader absolutely
| FREE!
|
| What is GameTrader?
|
| Actually, it is 3 publications in one.
|
| ELECTRONIC GAMING NEWS, INFORMATION & REVIEWS!!!
| The staff of GT (still being assembled) will bring you news and
| information each month on every facet of the gaming industry from new
| games to new systems with a variety of articles and columns.  Reviews?
| Yes, we'll have those too. Reviews which tell it like it is without
| trying to please game designers and advertisers. GameTrader's articles
| and columns will be geared toward the sophisticated and knowledgable
| gamer, not the typical 9-12 year-old that so many publications aim for.
|
| FANZINE FORUM
| This unique section will deal with the rapidly expanding world of game
| newsletters and fanzines. Each issue will carry a Fanzine Directory
| (with listings of Fanzines and information on how to get ahold of them)
| and a Fanzine Focus column (which will see what's new in this exciting
| arena and even focus in on a fanzine or two each month).  We will also
| have our own GT Fanzines, which will actually be miniature publications
| that focus on specific game systems and columns that you'll look forward
| to reading each month.  And in addition we will be including reprints of
| some of the top articles and reviews from the many fanzines we'll be
| collecting from around the world!  We believe the fanzine editor is a
| special breed and we know how hard it is for these individuals to
| publish their newsletters on a regular basis.  We want to assist them in
| any way we can.  (If you're a fanzine editor or contributor, please
| contact us for more information.)
|
| ELECTRONIC GAMING CLASSIFED CONNECTION
| Have games lying around collecting dust?  Looking for a certain game,
| but don't want to shell out $50 for it?  How about complete systems?
| Equipment?  Hint books?  You'll be able to do it all in our classified
| section.  We'll even have a special classified section called Power-Up!
| in which you'll be able to trade hints and tips with other GT readers.
| And the best part is that these classified listings will be absolutely
| free to subscribers!
|
| Sound exciting?  You bet!
|
| And now you might be asking what video game and computer systems will we
| be including in GameTrader.  You name it!
