The Daily HaiTaku

Bloody hell, I shouldn't have used to 'bacon' line in yesterday's Haitaku! It was way too easy. Yes, congratulations to everyone who managed to correctly guess yesterday's haiku. Especially to Beavwa, who was super quick on the trigger!

Today's haiku comes from my ol' pal Sughly, who always delivers.

A fight! ADRIAN! Give scavenger birds your proof Turn off gun to win

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!


    It's not Anna's Quest
    A missed opportunity
    For a shameless plug

    Ok. no idea. but based of flawed spartial thinking, heres a couple guesses

    LA Noir
    Red Dead Redemption
    Fallout 3, Raven Rock area (grasping at straws here, "a fight, Adrian!" might mean "Rocky" and "give scavenger birds your proof" might mean Ravens and at Raven Rock in fallout 3 you need to do something to "prove" your worth and that involves "talking" which is where you "turn your gun off" , oh god, who knows?)

      Ooo I like your train of thought! But nooo, I'm not that cruel. And ravens is a good guess, but not quite the right kind of bird :)

    Got something to do with ROCKY I assume too maybe Rambo on c64?

    Haha, the first thing that came to mind for me was Duck Hunt. Though, there was a guy called Adrian in Half Life: Opposing Force, and he was disarming a weapon of sorts.

    AH YES! Noone's guessed right yet, phew. Wasn't one of the guessed-in-2-seconds-entries, success!

    Also why's everyone think Duck Hunt? Ohhh, scavenging? But it's the birds that are scavengers...

      Birds. You could cheat with the zapper and for some reason I thought the dog was calked Rocky. Is my excuse regarding Duck hunt :-)

    The adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle or..
    Sylvester Stallone Steroid Synthesiser (Spectrum).


    p.s. Adrian is actually a character

    Well turning off the gun to win reminds me of Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Final Unity but that doesn't really gel with the rest of the clues. I'd have remembered a character with my name in that game given how much I loved the fuck out of it.

    The only other game I can think of with a character named Adrian was Full Throttle but that doesn't work either

    Im gonna take a stab and say Thief The Dark Ages.

    Blackwell Legacy :)

      Ohhh good guess! I remember that Adrian puzzle! But nooo. Someone's basically got it, but it was very anti climactic and I'm waiting for someone to break it down properly >_>

        Something something Vultures something something good times.

    Vulture (Adrian Toomes) is one of the villians.

    Its Full Throttle.
    Adrian is the bad guy.
    The Vultures are the motorcycle gang you meet in the game.
    You win the game by turning off the machine guns on the control panel for the semi and then stuff happens, boom, ripburger aka Mark Hamill gets his and its the end.

    i win!

      Yaaaay! I shouldnt have broken my Rocky distraction, it was working too well

        tbh i found your steam profile (hence some of the games i listed) and went through them. Noticed you have a larger than usual point and clock adventure game list i started on that track. Then when someone else palmed off full throttle as a possibility it was simply elementary my dear Watson.

          BOOOO! Back in my day, we solved riddles without the help of the internet!
