This is what I originally planned on submitting to the contest but I got cold feet at the last moment and deleted my post from the sign-up thread.

I'm usually pretty bad on the text. I spent a few hours just going through more fonts than a girl tries out prom dresses. :-°

The scanlines are a little too strong for me. I might also move the render up a bit and throw some lighting on/around it. Otherwise solid work. ;-D

honestly, you can pick the best font in the world and you still wont necessarily have good text. sometimes, times new roman or something simple can look the best if used appropriately. im no text expert, so i tend to keep it simple and plain, but try to do a good job of not making it a focal point.

For text, I use Arial font almost every time. Its clean, simple, and stays out of the way.
