The Daily HaiTaku

Serrels is sick today. He won't feel any better realising that yesterday's Haitaku was solved quite quickly.

Congratulations to B-ob, who correctly deduced that Xenon was the game du jour.

On to today. The last time I set a HaiTaku, it was for a release so old and obscure that no-one cracked it. I've gone to the retro well again this time, but with a rather better-known title:

Barrel is heavy, Cannot carry other things, But stops the starting.

Have at it, folks!

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!


    Did you hide in a barrel in one of the metal gear solid games?

    Secret of Mana?

      Love it, I'm going with this one.

        I don't quite get the last line but assuming that it prevents you from pressing start to open the circle menu deal that could be it, it has been so long I can't remember

          Stops the battles from starting, in a way. Except that they're real-time. Still, makes the most sense out of anything else I've googled around.

            You must Google deeper, young warrior.

              I looked at 160 pictures of barrels in various video games. And I got yesterday's answer. What more do you want from me! *breaks down crying*

              This would never happen if @markserrels was here. You're not my REAL dad!
