Kingdom Rush, Arrested Westeros and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger

VIDEOGAME | An old man sits in an Old West bar, trading stories for whiskey. He claims to have faced down — even shot — some of the wild, wild West’s greatest outlaws, and you play through his adventures, listening to his story, shooting increasingly ludicrous number of enemies. When the storyteller changes his mind, corrects himself, or gets lost in thought, the world around you follows suit. The gunplay in Call of Juarez: Gunslinger isn’t as fun as Bulletstorm and the narration’s not as distinct as in Bastion. But at a budget price, it’s worth a shot.

APP | Tower defense is the perfect zone-out genre. A line of towers unleashes fire, arrows and magic at hordes of incoming enemies, killing them, giving you gold to build bigger towers, to slaughter larger hordes of uglier enemies. Kingdom Rush made perhaps the best tower defense game yet by giving you little soldiers to battle some of the orcs, delaying them as your arrow towers rain pain from above. The sequel, for iPad and the iPhone, adds powerful new heroes (for which you must pay powerful real-world currency.)

TUMBLR | The cruel land of Westeros on Game of Thrones and the even crueler land of Southern California on Arrested Development have a lot in common: The importance of family, the loss of limb, and the way that weddings invariably end in disaster.

Now that both have finished their seasons, it’s the perfect time to check out Arrested Westeros, the Tumblr site that combines Arrested quotes with Game of Thrones screenshots. After all, “I’ve made a huge mistake” works equally well as the motto for both House Stark and House Bluth.
