We’re back and we’re seeing RED! That’s right, we’re finally diving into Nintendo’s half-baked novelty the Virtual Boy to learn a thing or two about the top-down, labyrinthine shooter Jack Bros. Question is, can the Doki Doki Game Club stand the strain of this crimson-hued monstrosity? Will the Brothers Jack return to the land of the demons in time? Will the guys ever let Frank pick another game to play? TUNE IN TO FIND OUT!

Behold! The cursed sun sinks below the horizon and the glorious moon climbs high overhead. Her pale beams shine upon the alabaster crypt and the sarcophagi within stir as the lids give way revealing your undead hosts! Luckily for you, and the villagers in the town below, it's not fresh virgin blood they're after, but instead the life sustaining power of a good podcast! Succumb to their glamours as their silvery tongues regale the adventures of that adorable little blood sucker Kid Dracula on the Nintendo Game Boy!
