The lights are on
Game Informer's month-long celebration of co-op gaming once again extends to Replay, our silly show that revisits gaming's past. In this episode, Atlus' Aram Jabbari joins Joe Juba, Tim Turi, and I for a fun look back at Natsume's co-op action game Pocky & Rocky. Playing this title ends up being a learning experience for our team. We can now identify the difference between a raccoon and a Japanese raccoon dog on sight. Sit back and enjoy the episode, folks, and be sure to stick around for a second segment that explores a long lost Sega Genesis relic.

Yay Aram! :D
I didn't expect such an article about this game. I really loved it, especially its setting in mythological Japan!
I knew it by the name Kikikaikai however.
Alright replay time
Aram's Bane voice...pure gold! That really made me laugh :)
my favorite Saints...well that has to be the Boondock Saints
This game reminds me so much of Legend of the Mystical Ninja for the snes, which itself was an awesome co-op game.
"Hammer Smashed Face"
I see what you did there Tim. :p
saint sword sounds like a power metal band from the 80's
Everyone's favorite guy, Aram, is back again! Hire Aram, have him make games for GI now, and be on every replay.
Aw yeah! If Aram is in this episode, it's gotta be fantastic! ^_^
Oh wow i used to play pocky and rocky all the time in the SNES. I for the life of me have no idea how I came across that game or why I picked it up, but I remember having a blast with it. I remember that the difficulty spikes big time though in later levels.
