Valiant Hearts: The Great War - Overview video

Let's get sad together!

That was our intention when starting this Overview of Valiant Hearts: The Great War — sometimes a good, cathartic cry is just what the doctor ordered. Unfortunately, nothing during our short play sessions stood out as being too terribly tragic; we're betting they save all the really, really good stuff for the ending. What we did see is some of the game's clever 2D adventure game mechanics, gorgeous art style and bizarre social media functionality. (Ever wanted to Tweet facts about trench foot? Here's your chance!)

In this Overview, Danielle and I play through a bit of the beginning of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, and discuss the proper method of clearing out your upper Chakras. We also take a break from the rigors of war to cook up the nastiest soup imaginable.
