The Daily HaiTaku

The Daily HaiTaku

Friday’s Remember This fell at the very first hurdle: well done to stanvangundy for picking Baraduke/Alien Sector. Given that Remember This appears to be too easy once again, the only sensible thing is a return for The Daily HaiTaku.

Can you identify the game this haiku refers to? (Bonus points for the fullest explanation.)

ABBA go-go fears!
There’s a place for Daleks, ears,
and to cop some food.


  • I’m gonna guess SingStar.

    There was an Abba version. And people used to dress up in weird costumes in the videos they’d upload. And… umm… yeah… that’s the best I’ve got 😛

  • I’m going to guess ikari warriors because if I remember correctly it had a cheat code on the NES – “abba” that gave you free lives

  • nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

    If you need me, I will be listening to This is the End on loop downstairs..

  • Oh dear people. There are six separate clues to the same game in there. Here’s hoping someone will crack it.

  • I’ll go out on a shaky limb and say Rogue Trooper, based solely on three very tentative links to three parts of the clues. :/

  • I’m going to guess Hugo 2: Whodunit – purely because it’s the only game I ever remember seeing a Dalek in. Also I’ll jump on any chance I get to mention a Hugo game.
    Pretty sure at least one of the characters had ears as well.

  • Well, I am going to take a chance and say its Minecraft.

    ABBA – a kind of switch used in redstone crafting. (ABBA is also a mini game on some servers)
    Fears – who isn’t scared of spiders/zombies/endermen at first? “Go go run for your life!”
    Daleks – there is a doctor who minecraft mod.
    Ears – There are lots of cool minecraft sounds in game! And music. And parodies.
    Cop – could be cops n robbers minecraft
    Food – well everyone needs food in minecraft, or you die.

    I’ll be amazed if I am right, but otherwise I have no clue. lol

    • Following on from your Doctor Who mod suggestion – maybe it could be Fallout New Vegas?

      -There’s a really well done Who mod for New Vegas
      -You can collect legion ears
      -‘Cop some food’ could maybe refer to the Rock-it-launcher you can use to shoot food/junk at enemies
      -Go-go could refer to dancers in casinos?

      No idea how that would relate to the ABBA clue though…

  • There’s a lot of Doctor Who games with Daleks in them, but I’m thinking that naming all of them would be too easy. I’ll let someone else wikipedia them and guess.

    I guess King of Fighters.
