Help Us Select Armchair Arcade's New Logo

[NOTE: This will be updated as new entries are submitted!]
Number 8Number 8Do you have ideas for Armchair Arcade's new logo? Do you know someone who would like to design a logo for us to look at? What follows are some very rough ideas of our own. It would be great if we could all work together to see what we like and dislike about various concepts and ideas. As we get closer to issue 8 and our first print issue, it's important we finalize a really clever logo design. The only requirement is that like the current placeholder logo, it has "Armchair" on top and "Arcade" on the bottom, and we're allowed to use it for any purpose without restriction. Bonus points for "Videogames and Computers" under the logo. Of course it needs to be a high resolution original file, preferably vector, or something we could recreate ourselves if it's not. Bonus points from me if it can somehow relay that we're about both Videogames AND Computers, and bonus, bonus points tying together classic, modern and future. If videogame-like characters could somehow interact with the Logo, even better, though they'd have to be original for us to use them. While we can't give anything away at this time, we'll give full credit for full usage rights and maybe something like a signed copy of our first print issue. Thanks!

So, let's hear comments about these logos, your own ideas, or link to your own submissions. We'll start to pare them down and continue this discussion with a new round and additional choices, sort of like a logo "survivor". Thanks for the help and be sure to participate!

I tried clicking on that before I posted, but I got this message:
No images were found. Please upload a new image or browse images by a different category.

What am I doing wrong?

I already listed most of

I already listed most of your logos in my original post, Mark. Let's keep on numbering these so it makes commenting easier. We'll need to start eliminating some in a day or two.

No upload button, link, etc

Well, I don't know what is wrong, but when I click the image to upload a pic, I see no button or link that says upload or anything like this.

If anyone has any idea what is going on, let me know. Otherwise I will sit here admiring the logo I made. :)

Hmm...I think I may have fixed the problem. Can you try it again, Dragon57? We'd really like to see your logo!
