Re: Places to download shareware games and demo releases

When I try to download files from Gameaholic's Blizzard mirror, it for some reason Always redirects me to the FTP protocol despite the links going to HTTP, which of course doesn't work since the files aren't available there, and haven't been for a good while, as far as I can remember. I've tried with both Edge and Chorme. Is this only a problem on my end, or not?

Sorry for not replying sooner! I checked the ftp, and the Blizzard mirror just seems to be not there, although I managed to open this file.

In fact, I think I never tried downloading anything from there, I just assumed that the mirror worked.

I just found another old site which has some of its file archived preserved by the Wayback Machine: The Gamer's Inn. It was listed here. Some notable highlights:
