How SizzleEntertainment started their logo design journey

Company name

Sizzle Entertainment

Overview

SE is a startup game development company. We are in the initial stages of building the company and need to start looking professional to enhance credibility with potential partners, employees, and investors. We plan on focusing on mobile games at first, but this should not influence the logo design* because we don't want to be branded as only a "mobile game developer".
*Caveat: If you have an idea that would play well with iPhone and/or Android markets, yet not box the brand into a corner for future expansion into PC or console gaming, feel free to pitch it.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

As alluded to above, while this project is for a game developer, the real target for the brand will not be the gamers themselves but partners/investors/etc. We will target specific gaming audiences using the individual game's brand.

Requirements

The design should be relatively simple/solid/professional with just a touch of...well...sizzle!

Here are is a list of logos we like:
Ubisoft
Nintendo
Electronic Arts
Bioware
Massive Entertainment
Firaxis Games

Some logos we don't like (for the purposes of this project):
Hasbro
Blizzard
Namco Bandai
Mythic Entertainment

Other Notes:

-Preferably you create at least two versions--one with a white background and one with black.

-We are leaning towards always including "Entertainment" in the logo but are open to designs without it.

-See the attached images for rough concept sketches - their names describe how we feel about them. These are just ideas though and your submissions do not need to duplicate them. We are definitely looking for your own creative interpretations.

-Notice that one image is not the name but an icon that goes next to it, this is highly desirable--not necessary a flame in a circle, or even a flame--but it should have something to do with, or feel like, the word sizzle.

-No female figures please (don't want to be confused with sizzle.com!)

-Preferred colors: Black, silver/metallic, white, possibly some red or orange
