Some of which he even read. At Popehat, we celebrate our core beliefs. To achieve victory, one must attack. But one cannot attack without a plan. A plan cannot be formed without mastering fundamentals. And nothing is more fundamental than reading. We even think pictures occasionally enhance the experience. As such, here's a slice of […]
The road that lead to the next Godzilla movie (release: imminent) was an unlikely one, but not altogether unexpected. 1998’s debacle notwithstanding, Toho is not inherently against being offered what I assume is large amounts of money for licensing. Director Gareth Edwards has never helmed a project whose budget surpassed 500k. But the work he […]
The Power Puff Girl Blossom, or possibly Sun Tzu, said "know thine enemy". It turns out that you can also get to know someone by knowing their enemy. Or enemies, as the case may be. Here is a rare peek inside the secret world of Popehat. Patrick's arch-nemesis is Emperor Grog. Emperor Grog is a […]

Our favorite guide to one of our favorite games has recently resurfaced. Unfortunately the maps section doesn't appear to be working (despite the files being there), and I haven't had time to determine why. For now, you can download the guide below. helherron_guide At a later date we will probably do proper hosting (the guide […]
Sort of. . . I'm informed that today is the 25th anniversary of the Apple II release of Ultima IV. I can't recall if it came out on the Apple IIc/e before any other system and don't particularly care. There is never a reason needed to celebrate this milestone, but a release anniversary for one […]
