Contra Evolution now a free game to download for your Android device

Last year saw the release of Contra Evolution, a complete overhaul and remake of the original classic Contra game from way back in the Nintendo 8-bit days. When it first took off, it had a modest price tag of .99 cents. Konami has now decided to lower it to a price that anyone can afford, and that being free of charge. Indeed, if you have an Android and want to download Contra Evolution, it won't cost you a dime. And now for the catch part, as it still has "In Game Purchases" you can make.

Scrape that issue aside if you can, and your good to go if you haven't yet tried this remake of such a great classic hit from the late 1980s. Evolution has some excellent graphics, the music is incredible to listen to, and it of course like the original it can be one heck of a challenge. So much a challenge that the only thing the game lacks, is the ability to use the 30 man Konami code trick that the original title was so famous for. Check out the video below if you haven't seen it in action yet.

Google Chrome Web Store adds a "Konami Code Test and Discover" app to find Easter Eggs

It's Konami Code awareness time, as Google has added to their Web Store a new add on application for your Chrome browser called the "Konami Code Tester", created by Swiss marketing agency Suisseo. You've likely seen it time and again, the code being used in website to do everything from making it look like part of the site had gotten blown up, to causing dinosaurs to appear wearing funny hats on sites like VOGUE.

There are so many possibilities still left, site code designers have placed the old Gradius code so that only a select few intellectual types can identify and find it. Well that's no longer the case, as for those of you who use Google Chrome for most of your browsing and surfing needs, will be able to identify immediately any site that has the Konami code built into it.

Who knows, perhaps you might run into a site where you input the code, and it makes a fairy appear to spread pixie dust all over your computer monitor. Or it could even make a level of Gradius appear, complete with full fire power!

Two great Silent Hill games from the past are headed to your PSVita system soon

Isn't this a nice welcome treat for your hands. A blast from the past, as two excellent Silent Hill games will be headed to your PSVita hand held system soon. Both Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, and Silent Hill: Origins will be available on the Playstation Network for you to download to your Vita. The exact date has not been announced yet, but the price for each will be £7.99, with the US price also not set.

Shattered Memories was something of a remake of the original Silent Hill game, with an all new face lift in terms of graphics, and a plot that changes throughout the game depending on the choices you make along the way. Origins was likely the better of the two, getting pretty high ratings from the review sites out there. Those unfamiliar with one or both can check out a couple of game play videos below, and see if it's something you want to take on the road with you. As soon as I get word of a set release date, I will post it here as always.

Cesar Octavio Celaya uses his time to create some impressive Metal Gear art

The imagination is always the deepest source for inspiration when it comes to artistry, and that's certainly no exception with an artist by the name of Cesar Octavio Celaya, who lives in Monterrey, Mexico. He is a fan of Metal Gear games, and has taken the time to put together some magnificent works of art. Most of them for Solid Snake and Big Boss, but all of them a total eye full. I always enjoy game art and those who take the time to use their talents so the rest of us can enjoy them, and these gems are among the best.

Cesar's page is located at Behance, a site dedicated to artists, graphic designers, photography, and illustration pieces created by its members. Cesar also has other works of art besides Metal Gear Solid, such as Call of Duty, WatchMen, and even Schindler's List. Be sure to check them all out and give him a click on the "Appreciate This" button located there at the bottom of the screen. These three images you see below are only just a handful based on the links below.
