The Daily HaiTaku

Whoa, HaiTaku really went off yesterday! Thanks to Gabriel for putting together such a great Haiku.

As I was scrolling through all the comments this morning I was thinking to myself that I'd probably have to post a simpler version of the Haiku (which Gabriel actually provided!) But them right at the death, positivist came up with the correct answer. Well done! It was Operation: Inner Space. Amazing work.

Good luck with today's Haiku everyone! Today's effort actually comes from the desk of Angus Kidman, the Editor of Lifehacker. I actually don't know the answer because he's refused to tell me!

A bird in a plane; A bird lover in the ring; A bird as a gun.

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. Sent it here!


    Look, Plutakians!
    Time to rock ‘em and sock em guys!
    Biker Mice from Mars

    Bird as a gun? Sounds like Banjo-Tooie again :P

    Bogged down, dead end day
    Getting deeper and deeper
    Shane says it's The Dig

    I know Banjo Tooie has a FPS section, but otherwise, hmmm....

    I am so SICK of these m*****f**** birds in this m*****f**** haiku.

    Is it one of the Disgaea games? You could use the Prinnies as a gun. "Plane" may also refer to a cartesian coordinate plane.

    Final Fantasy 7
    Final Fantasy 8
    Final Fantasy 9
    Final Fantasy 10

    Doves as guns. RED DWARF. I'm not fussed about the answer, I just now wanna watch Red Dwarf

    Obviously it's Gunbird 3: The Wedding, which is definitely a real game and not something I made up.


    One of the Starfoxes?
    Star Fox
    Star Fox 64 / Lylat Wars
    Star Fox Adventures
    Star Fox Assault
    Star Fox 3D

    Ha 'a bird as a gun' reminds me of the old chicken launcher mod for original doom that modified your rocket launcher

    The Elevators.
    Constantly go up and down.
    Elevator Action.

    Deathspank had a chicken cannon but I can't place the rest of the haiku in the game.


    There's a lot of games with guns nicknamed things like Eagle or Raven or Crow or Hawk. Doesn't narrow it down.

    I wonder if bird in a plane is an aeroplane or a plane of existence. Plenty of planes (or plane weapons) with bird nicknames too. Doesn't narrow it much.

    The bird lover in the ring sounds like it should be distinctive (although again, are we talking a boxing ring, a piece of jewellery, what?).
