I have put a restriction in place that is going to break all downloads of archive (ZIP & RAR) files on this site unless accessed from pages on the site itself. This was done to break hotlinking of those files from sites that were discrediting this site for hosting mirrors for those files. What this means is that all external site hotlinks will no longer work, typing the URL directly into your browser will no longer work, going directly to the download from a browser favorite/bookmark will no longer work & linking to the download through an anonymizer service will no longer work; there is the possibility that if you are using a service or plugin that discards referrals, this would also effect your ability to download them. To download an archive file, go to the download page itself. All previously whitelisted direct-download hotlinks have been removed.
NOTE: Avoid trying to download archive files through an HTTPS connection for the time being, I haven't managed to get this to work under the new restriction yet...
Fixed the Battlefield v1.50 patch download again... My host keeps deleting the file from the server, so for the time being it's being linked off of another site; I may attempt providing a mirror for the patch again in the future by breaking the patch up into smaller parts if the external mirrors for the patch are no longer available...
It seems that archived raw access logs for this month are unavailable prior to the 24th, so troubleshooting on site issues before the 24th won't be available due to what appears to be a wipe of activity for this month by my host.
As of 5/2/2017, I have started expanding the amount of search engines that I'm submitting pages on my site to, this comes in response to the fact that Google apparently is unwilling to index certain pages on my site. I originally attempted Yahoo, but when the URL crawl submittal page was timing out, I decided to move on to Bing. While I didn't like Bing in the beginning, it seems I have thus far had no problems with getting my site indexed in their search engine (verifying that some of the pages that Google won't index, Bing has without problems), so I've added the site verification meta tags to my site to make things easier in getting my site indexed by them, as well as I have adjusted the referral whitelist so visitors from Bing search results won't have a problem with 403 referral errors making them think they've been banned (at least with certain referral-restricted content, archives such as RARs & ZIPs are still restricted from hotlinking unless I have manually added those sites as an acceptable referral source for those file types). I am now putting down Bing as a secondary search engine for personal use, possibly even making it my primary in the near future if I find the results on Bing are more accurate (and less censored) than Google.
5/6/2017 EDIT: Scratch that... Looks like after I made this statement, Bing is also censoring the same pages that Google is. I will be closing my Bing webmaster account at this point, deleting Bing favorites/bookmarks in my browser & later be pulling the verification meta tags from the site, as well as revoking Bing from the hotlink whitelist. Thank you VERY much Bing for wasting several hours of my life adding the webmaster verification code to every page on my site, only to find you're going to do the same thing Google is (the reason why I opened an account with Bing in the first place).
Due to NUMEROUS attacks on my reviews on Steam, I am making a rush effort to move all reviews from Steam to here to get them away from Steam's easily-abused review system. All reviews will be done on this site from now on, I won't bother putting them on Steam anymore & I expect Steam will continue to lose further users writing legitimate reviews, to the point that Steam's review system is just going to become a distasteful nightmarish memory when all that's left are one-liner troll-trash reviews that don't have anything to do with the games themselves.
Reviews added thus far to WonderGamer.net:
I'm also disabling a number of the mirrors (notes added to each download page with details as to why they've been disabled) for MOD/patch downloads due to running boycotts. If the situations get resolved in the future, they may be re-enabled at a later date. For some boycotts, the damage caused is permanent & can't be resolved, so those will be permanently removed (along with their download pages being removed).
New review added for Pokemon GO.
New review added on Steam review attacks, expected to be caused by 2K in retaliation to the current boycott against them. Seems they'd sooner deal with the hassle of attacking former-customers & getting further information published about their misconduct as a professional company rather than fixing the issue with Evolve & getting it over with... Were they to fix the problem with Evolve, I would end the boycott & remove the boycott page against them (including each individual review against their games with boycott information), but the 2 reviews that are currently up (1 site review & 1 company review), those are there to stay (with more to come later if it continues), but they can still be updated with information stating the issue ended up getting resolved...if it ever comes to that, but their lack of initiative to fix the issue, retaliation to the situation & poor rate of satisfaction on BBB complaints would only indicate that that probably won't ever happen...
