The Daily HaiTaku

Plenty of people were beating around the general correct area of yesterday's HaiTaku, but it was thehasbrogamer who was first to totally get it properly right — well done!

I think it might be time for me to put on the old haiku hat! It's been a while.

Here goes...

In this empty shell The lightning strikes more than twice Ghosts in the machine

Good luck everyone!

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!


    Does anyone think
    I even read clues anymore?
    Answer is The Dig.

      Oh I think that you do
      Just in case you discover
      answer is The Dig

    Metal gear solid 2? Big shell, raiden, dunno about the ghosts part though...

    A Zealot - killed and placed in to a dragoon (empty shell), giving him a second life (lightning (psionic power) strikes twice), as a ghost in a machine :P.
    Probably not what you were thinking but I think it fits well.

    edit - bah, "more than twice". Definitely wrong.

    Ghouls & Ghosts / Ghost and Goblins?

    Luigi's Mansion 2

    a.k.a. Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

    Edit: It says "MORE THAN twice." Less confident in my guess now...

    My first thought is Pokemon.

    Or maybe Another World?

    Final Fantasy X

    The lightning dodging game
    The empty shell of Sin
    The fayth are arguably ghosts in the machine (alternatively, all the dead characters who fade into nothingness at the end are even mroe obviously ghosts in the machine).
