WIN! Tekken 6 Xbox 360 Arcade Stick Edition

Want Tekken 6, but don’t have an arcade stick for that authentic fighting game experience? Why not try and win one.

From Monday to Friday this week, we’ll be giving away one Tekken 6 Arcade Stick Edition on Xbox 360 each day. It comes with a wireless arcade stick from stick specialists Hori, a 100-page art book and, of course, a copy of the game.

To win, you’ll need to once more impress us with your literary creativity. Yes, it’s haiku time again on Kotaku. We want you to write an ode to Tekken (or perhaps just fighting games in general) in haiku form. And the haiku form we’re counting is three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables.

Leave your haiku in the comments below. You must leave it before midnight today to be eligible for today’s draw. Check back tomorrow at 10am to see if you’ve won and, if you didn’t, to enter tomorrow’s draw with a brand new haiku.

Please note: As per usual, only one entry per day is allowed. If you leave multiple entries, only the first haiku will be considered.

Wednesday’s winner is jawbreaker982, for this tragic tale:

Circuits fried. Small fire. Turns out I can't build my own. Really need that stick.

UPDATE: Thursday's draw is now closed. Stay tuned for Friday's at 10am.

    Noobs! Oppressing me!
    I need more leet skillz or hax!
    Oh well, back to porn.

    am tenth dan black belt.
    destroy steel with iron fist.
    lost in the first round.

    I'm out of ideas.
    Win or lose, Tekken is great
    So I'll just buy it.

    Tekken Tournament;
    World's fighters applaud new champ,
    Boxing Kangaroo.

    Ancient Hitachi
    Still kicks like an angry mule
    Old Spice vapors rule

    I am confused when,
    thrown from up on high,
    these Michimas just won't die,

    Breakdancing kills now?
    My type only kills my luck
    With pretty ladies

    Cookie monster has.
    Huge fat fingers, thick blue fur,
    Need stick or cookie!

    Tekken can be shared
    With easy domestic bliss
    Wife has hots for Jin

    You need a Fight Stick
    If you want to juggle foes
    Real men don't use pads

    How could this happen?
    My sister beating me down,
    Need stick to pwn her!

    Fell off the wagon,
    after seeing Tekken 4.
    Do you still fight Roo's?

    Robot maids, old men
    spetznaz, wrestlers, teenage girls
    who cares about physics?

    Shapeless like water,
    It can flow, or it can crash.
    Be like Water Friend

    Ref to Bruce Lee quote

    New characters true
    Their back-stories make you blue
    Cry not! Just fight through

    Blisters on fingers
    No pain no glory no win
    Tell wife chopping wood

    button mashing skillz,
    or technical procession,
    i WILL still own thee!

    Jin's Haiku

    Father, Grandfather,
    Your cursed blood will never match
    this devil of mine

    *I posted this in the wrong place this morning :(

    Up, Up, Down, Down, Left
    Right, Left, Right, B, A, say what?
    Oh shit, it's namco...

    kick ass combos and
    five hundred hours of gameplay
    but need more zombies

    Ready to face King,
    Of Iron Fist Tournament,
    Stick it to the man.

    on. line. seems. to. lag....
    wai-ting. for. punch. to. con-nect.....
    but. it. comes. too.... late.....

    So, Tekken 6 has
    Some characters with short names;
    That's great for haiku.

    Christie Monteiro...
    No line left to write...
