#Ten Minute Taste


Ten Minute Taste: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The console versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launched this morning. Hundreds, probably thousands of retailers did a special midnight release in celebration of the billions of sales sure to come in. If you care a lot about MW2 you ...


Ten Minute Taste: Jurassic: The Hunted

Quick, name some videogames that let you punch a velociraptor in the face with a quicktime event. I'll start -- Jurassic: The Hunted! This Activition-published first-person shooter quietly made its way to shelves last week for Xbox 360, Pl...


Ten Minute Taste: Dragon Age: Origins

Dragon Age: Origins is an RPG-ass RPG. As such, the first ten minutes of the game aren’t packed with playable action; rather, developer Bioware orients the player with the game’s universe and its biggest problem: a new blight. ...


Ten Minute Taste: LEGO Rock Band

Earlier today, I gave you a taste of Band Hero, and proceeded to bare my soul to the Internet as I tried to convince everyone (and myself) that it's okay to like Maroon 5 songs. How many band games can I play in one day? The answer, my fri...


Ten Minute Taste: Band Hero

Based on most of the reader comments to previous Band Hero stories, I already have a good idea of what you guys think of this game.  You don't know why it exists or how it's different than Guitar Hero 5, and all of this top-40 popular...


Ten Minute Taste: FIFA 10

I'm no sports buff, but I enjoy a good soccer game. In fact, soccer and golf are the only sports games I'll ever play. Well, these and Baseball Simulator 1000 for the NES. That game was awesome. FIFA 10 is probably the ultimate soccer game...


Ten Minute Taste: Need for Speed: NITRO

Electronic Arts' Wii-exclusive racer, Need for Speed: NITRO hits, hits stores today and here are the first ten minutes of gameplay.  Color me surprised when, not long after booting up the game, I found that I was actually -- gasp! -- ...


Ten Minute Taste: Uncharted 2

Uncharted 2 opens with a scene on an inverted train car. There’s blood. A lot of blood. Nathan Drake’s blood, to be specific, as well as a few minutes of frantic climbing as the car begins spitting and lurching down the snowy m...


Ten Minute Taste: GTA: Episodes from Liberty City

First, a little housekeeping -- I cheated a bit with this Ten Minute Taste of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. It's more like a 12 minute and 30 second taste of "The Ballad of Gay Tony," one of the two bits of standalone Grand...


Ten Minute Taste: Everybody's Refreshment demo

Minna no Sukkiri may not sound familiar to you at first, but you may have played some of the series games. We know them here as Hot Shots series. It doesn't exactly translate, as "minna" means everyone or everybody.  They are...


Ten Minute Taste: Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble

I'm all for a game that has the words "badass" in its name. Wait, is this a first for gaming? Soon to be released on the PSP, Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble has you controlling your home town area's biggest high school badass. No on...


Ten Minute Taste: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star

Ah, Lunar. It still stands in my top ten game series of all time. I fell in love with the old Sega CD versions way back in the day, fell in love again with the fantastic PlayStation versions, and now I'm ready to replay one of my favorites ...


Ten Minute Taste: Forza Motorsport 3

You already know that I adore the game, but I thought I might show you what it looks like. Much like our other Ten Minute Taste videos, you'll see Forza Motorsport 3 from the beginning, intro and all. But, since the intro's not that short,...


Ten Minute Taste: LocoRoco Midnight Carnival

LocoRoco Midnight Carnival for PlayStation Portable/PSPgo hits PlayStation Network next week, but Sony was nice enough to pass the goods to us a little early. While we have to wait until October 29 (when the digital-download-only games hits...


Ten Minute Taste: Borderlands

So Gearbox Software's Borderlands is finally out, and from what I hear, it's kind of a big deal. Last I checked (that was this morning, by the way), it was the number-one-selling game on Steam, beating out Valve's own Left 4 Dead 2 and BioW...


Ten Minute Taste: Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (PSP)

Wondering how Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars looks and plays on the PlayStation Portable? We've pulled the first ten minutes of the game (loading screens and all!) for you to check out, so wonder no more. The game itself i...
