The Daily HaiTaku

Well no-one guessed yesterday's game. Whoa. Well done Beavwa, you totally stumped them. The game was actually Picnic for the Atari 2600.

Today's Haiku comes from Germinal Consequence, who was once a serial ScribbleTaku contributor. Good luck everyone!

Defeat at my hands, Power taken into me. I can shoot snakes.

This is HaiTaku. We write Haikus about old video games and leave it you to guess what game we're talking about. If you want to submit a Haiku feel free. Send it here!


    Defeat... It's The Dig!
    Power absorbed... It's The Dig!

    5/7/4... come on guys! :P

    Um... is it Tutankham?

      Crap, sorry. My haiku meter was way off on that one. I thought Snakes was 2 syllables. Let's just pretend it really said "I can now shoot snakes."

    MEGAMAN 3!


      When you defeat Snake Man, you get this power:

    Red dead redemption, only because i shot a lot of snakes in that game

    I definitely think it's mega man 3. Snake Man is the snakes from your hands

    Wonder if they're still doing the classic retro series... Do you shoot snakes from your gun or are you shooting at snakes or perhaps at someone named Snake?

    I'm going to go with Beyond Dark Castle

    I'll go with Highlander, or Mortal Kombat.

    The first two lines could fit about 90% of games where you defeat enemies to gain stuff. And the last line could be any game where you literally shoot snakes.

    I think Mega Man 3 fits "best", but I mean it could just as easily be Red Dead Redemption or something like that.

    No Metal Gear Solid puns, please.

    Re: yesterday's HaiTaku, glad to see we got stumped for once. Man, that's obscure. And I thought digging out "Mister Mosquito" was obscure!
