Hello and welcome to SELECT_START. A place for reckless gaming opinions.

SELECT_START is going to be a place where we talk and vent about video games. We were born from our own dissatisfaction of over hyped games that has grown in the past 2 decades. It has run rampant through our TVs, beloved websites and our favorite magazines. Our goal is to help shed some light where there is only darkness.

Haven't we all had this experience? You hear about this game and it sounds kinda cool. It's got zombies, explosions... wait umm... and cute teddy bears? You know, the things we all love. You read about it in magazines and scour websites for bits of info. Sometimes the hype starts years in advance and during the period in which one must wait, the secret forces of the gaming industry begin to shovel barrels and barrels of coal into their "Hype Train". Throughout this period they begin to tell us what we want and what we need. Most of us climb aboard this train and ride it like no ones business. Some of us will ride the train so long that we actually end up wanting those damn cute teddy bears they said were the next big leap in gaming. And when the deed is done, and the game hits the markets, they reap the rewards from their marketing firestorm. Then your left feeling like a sucker who's only going to get 10 bucks for a trade in at GameStop. We need to break free of these bonds, and learn to make decisions for ourselves. SELECT_START is here with gunz blazin'.

We would like to help you, and everyone out there dodge this epic train of failure. Our goal is to protect you from the suffering we all felt during our first online match against Ken in Street Fighter IV. Or after beating Resident Evil 5 that left you with that feeling of; "This fucking game got a 9.5/10?" We too have felt that sting, and we're sick of it!

Bask in the glory that is SELECT_START! Where you may now begin to learn of true greatness. We are your infallible source of joy. Amen (we're not Religious... really).

Your Opinionated Hosts,
Den and The Butcher
