The Daily HaiTaku

I am disappoint with myself, Kotaku. No-one got anywhere near solving yesterday’s deeply cryptic HaiTaku, despite some impressively creative guesses. Clearly I am too obscure/ancient/cruel. So I’ll explain what you missed and then we’ll try something easier, OK?


Humanoid Raccoons, Supermutant Invasions And Other Cut Fallout Content

I would have loved the original Fallout so much more had the planned mutant raccoon faction made it into the game. VG Facts’ “Leftovers” series looks at the S’lanter faction, extra maps, the planned Supermutant invasion and other bits left out of the post-apocalyptic classic.


Remember This?

It was tight, but I’m going to say that Black Dahlia NZ was first in guessing that yesterday’s Remember This was Dune 2. Nicely done. I see that a heap of people managed to guess it correctly. Nice work.


Remember This?

Well done to Silent who totally guessed that yesterday’s Remember This was Demons to Diamonds. He actually guessed it correctly on Tuesday but I missed it. Sorry about that, and congratulations.


Ghosts 'N Goblins Sure Looks Grim As A Current-Gen Game

Dayshot: Ghosts ‘n Goblins sure looks grim as a current-gen game. The shots are from a seven-week, eight-person student project where the goal was to “recreate the classic game with a next-gen look in Unreal Engine 4″. Well, they succeeded. The fruits of their labours, a two-minute video and five HD shots, are below.


Remember This?

There were some really good guesses yesterday, but no correct answer! So we go to a second clue…


Remember This?

Congrats to falterdan who managed to guess yesterday’s Remember This is three minutes flat. It was Bosconian. Nice job. I thought I’d get at least two days out of that one!


Here's Why The 3DO Port Of Doom Sucked

Seems everyone’s getting in on Doom’s birthday nostalgia. After John Romero revealed a ton of unseen art, Rebecca Heineman has released the original 3DO port source code, along with an explanation of why it wasn’t so great.


Remember This?

Friday’s Remember This was Rogue. Well done to Hell_Rok for getting it first. Also — well done to Talicca who totally noticed that I’d done this game already!


Remember This?

No-one got yesterday’s Remember This. That warms the icy cockles of my frozen heart.
