#Ten Minute Taste


TMT: Super Mario Galaxy 2

Look, I'm not about to ruin the first ten minutes of a game I'm about to go out and buy the second Best Buy opens up today. However, if you're still on the fence for some reason about picking up Super Mario Galaxy 2 or you're one of those ...


Ten Minute Taste: Alan Wake

Usually these posts are done by either the person who recorded the footage (in this case, Rey) or someone who's gotten the chance to at least play the game in question. I fall under neither of those categories, but I do desperately want Al...


Ten Minute Taste: Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition

ACE Team's strange little first-person number, Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition, has hit Xbox LIVE Arcade today. It would probably be easier to explain the plot of David Lynch's Eraserhead than to try to convey the narrative of Zeno Clash, so I...


Ten Minute Taste: Kick-Ass (PSN)

Frozen Codebase's Kick-Ass just hit the PlayStation Network yesterday, and here are the first ten minutes of the game. Available as a download-only PS3-exclusive, the game is based on both the recent film and the comic series, borrowing mo...


Ten Minute Taste: Last Rebellion

If you've ever played one, you'll know that ten minutes is barely enough for a whiff, much less a taste of the typical RPG. That's why we recorded eleven minutes of footage from NIS-America's new title, Last Rebellion, due February 23rd. T...


Ten Minute Taste: No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

Jonathan Holmes just posted his review of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and to call it glowing would be an understatement. I have to agree, as I've been having a hell of a good time with it myself. If you're still not sold on how go...


Ten Minute Taste: Mass Effect 2

Mass Effect 2 kicks off with a couple bangs and more than a few surprises. If you've followed coverage of the second chapter of the sci-fi RPG, you'll no doubt remember either (a) seeing this before or (b) hearing us talk about it during E...


Ten Minute Taste: Darksiders

I’ve spent a couple of hours or so with THQ and Vigil Games’ Darksiders. I can glean from these initial hours that the game is more than what I thought it was: a God of War clone with some Zelda spice. No, it appears that Darks...


Another Ten Minute Taste: Final Fantasy XIII

As requested and promised, here's our additional Ten Minute Taste of the Japanese version of Final Fantasy XIII. Our first one didn't do much for those that played the Japanese demo, as it covered much of the same ground. This new one come...


Five Minute Taste: 0 Day Attack on Earth

Normally we do "Ten Minute Tastes" here at Destructoid, but I ran into a little problem with 0 Day Attack on Earth, which hits Xbox LIVE Arcade today. I died at the five-minute mark. As our own Jonathan Ross put it, "You are terrible at th...


Ten Minute Taste: Final Fantasy XIII

I'm a good few hours into Final Fantasy XIII now. My verdict so far? It's not groundbreaking, unless you count the visuals. Otherwise, it's a good, solid RPG so far. The battle system has just started to open up, as has the story. For the ...


Ten Minute Taste: Alien Breed Evolution

If you like blasting aliens to bits in dark corridoors, then one of today's Xbox LIVE Arcade releases, Alien Breed Evolution, is for you.  The game has an "old school" feel, almost immediately reminding me of the PlayStation...


Ten Minute Taste: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

So, Silent Hill made its way to the Wii. Let that echo in your ears for a bit. But no worries, it's actually really good. Look out for our full review later today. For now, here's our Ten Minute Taste of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Yo...


Ten Minute Taste: The Saboteur

You’ve watched delicate dancers gyrate with bouncing breasts exposed, now consider watching nine more minutes captured from the opening of Pandemic’s The Saboteur, the studio’s last release before EA closed their doors.Th...


Ten Minute Taste: PixelJunk Shooter

Today, Sony announced that Q-Games' PixelJunk Shooter -- the fourth in its PlayStation Network PixelJunk series -- would be released on December 10. While you'll have to wait until then to play it (and to read my review), here's a short ta...


Ten Minute Taste: Borderlands 'Zombie Island' DLC

As we said about 40 minutes ago, Borderlands DLC “The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned” is a thing that is happening right now over PSN and Xbox LIVE. I grabbed the content off of Xbox LIVE Marketplace this morning, hoping to put some ...


Ten Minute Taste: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta

Earlier this weekend, I decided to drop the weights and pick up the Dual Shock. This kind of recreation isn’t anything new, but the thing I chose to play sort of is: the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PS3-exclusive beta. Above is ten swe...


Ten Minute Taste: 1 vs. 100 Season 2

Chris Cashman’s smooth voice blasted into over 22,000 people’s ear holes last evening during the live debut of the second season of 1 vs. 100. I was one of those in attendance, listening to the Cashman in rapture while plugging...


Ten Minute Taste: MAG beta

The other afternoon I asked myself (via the Internet of all places) why I wasn’t participating in the MAG beta. Like most of my peers with a soft spot for lead and things that fire said lead, I was blown away by the promise of the Zi...


Ten Minute Taste: New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Maybe you're like me and spent your weekend fighting against illness, unable to brave the cold world to pick up a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Or maybe you're just not yet convinced after our stellar review of the title.  Either...


Ten Minute Taste: Assassin's Creed 2

Sunday morning was full of surprises, one of them being Target selling Assassin's Creed 2 a bit early. The amusing part was when the cashier realized the game wasn't released until Tuesday -- after he sold it to me. I just smiled and nodde...


Ten Minute Taste: Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Capcom's Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles hits shelves tomorrow, and while Jonathan Holmes will have our full review later in the week, I wanted to give you a quick glimpse of what you'll encounter in the first ten minutes. ...


Ten Minute Taste: Military Madness: Nectaris (PSN)

Military Madness: Nectaris is 3D turn-based downloadable strategy game. Similar to SEGA’s Shining Force, except with shell-spewing tanks instead of steel-coated armadillos and dragons, I’ve found the game tickles an itch that I...


Ten Minute Taste: Call of Duty Modern Warfare Reflex

With all the hype and controversy about terrorists doing evil terrorists things involving terror, addictive multi-player and shiny graphics -- Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has showered in a crazy amount of love (and hate) each week leadin...


Ten Minute Taste: Call of Duty: Classic

Infinity Ward’s downloadable version of the original Call of Duty, dubbed Call of Duty: Classic, is now available over Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network. Do try to keep from wetting your pants in sweet, sweet anticipation: as of righ...
