Why did I do this..( image heavy blog )

Ok so I just got Castlevania Lords of Shadow a couple days ago and was pretty stoked. 
Until I saw the atrocious boxart:

Ok maybe its not that bad, but It certainly didn't feel Castlevania enough.

So with help from vgboxart.com (some dude named Sen did some crazy stuff with the official concept art) and some photo shopping, I decided to print out my own custom made kickass castlevania boxart. Heres the front:

Rate my cover art

Hello all. 
 
I am a noobie Graphic Designer who was given the task to redesign an album of my choice into a record sleeve cover.
 
The band I decided to do it on was Death In Vegas ( the album itself is called "Satan's Circus") 
 
Before it gets torn apart by my teacher, I would like you all to take a crack at it.

My own personal critique would be that i made it look too grungy..especially since this is an Electronica band 
 
Heres an example of their work:

Going HD for the first time..

So this week, i'm finally getting enough cash to buy an HDTV (i got about $250). I've been gaming on a laughably small SD TV forever so... this is BIG. 

 Bye bitch

 there it is! 19

Any suggestions in terms of TVs i should get? I don't really know or care about the difference of 720p or 1080p i just want HD. Also, my room isn't huge, so a small TV isn't a problem. 
 
List of Ps3 games: 
Demon's Souls
Assassin's Creed 2
Metal gear solid 4
Dragon Age: Origins
Marvel vs Capcom 2
..and soon FFXIII
 
are any of the latter games worth going back to just to see how it looks like in HD?
 
UPDATED!: got my TV and im pretty happy with it!

ignore the seizure warning

I'm sure you've seen this warning before. Especially if you play Nintendo systems.
 
Photosensitive Seizure Warning
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games.   

(apparently 1 in 4000)
 
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms.  
 
lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness.
 
 
 
Ok..there are a lot of gamers out there. There's bound to be a few who blatantly ignore this warning even though they do suffer from some kind of seizures. 
 
Maybe its not that severe or maybe they just don't care, but i'm sure it happens.
 
I don't suffer from any seizures myself but i was wondering if anyone at giant bomb ignores the warning daily to satisfy their urge to play games?
