Webgame Wednesday: Westerado
Sometimes you just want to play cowboy, but your wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend/roommate/parents/dog just look at you funny when start wearing chaps and a ten-gallon hat around the house. Might I suggest giving the new Adult Swim video game Westerado a shot instead. This gorgeous 16-bits-style Western-style action RPG is shockingly expansive. You play a red-clad gunslinger looking to find the man who killed your family. Get jobs, question townspeople, fight bandits, wrangle buffalo. Along the way, you'll gather clues as to the killer's identity. A wide variety of tasks and a sly sense of humor make this a blast to play. Just watch where you point that six-shooter, partner.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #224: I am the good guy in an old west shootout.
I am the good guy in an old west shootout. The outcome historically is known to be in my favor, but I am reliving it anyway. The bad guy, dressed in purple and black, is barricaded in a shack. My weapon is a breakdown, single shot pellet gun with detachable silencer and stock. The bad guy suddenly bursts out and rushes me. I manage to load my gun and shoot him in the eye (he is a cyclops).

How the West was fed
As comfortable and hardy as an old pair of boots, the chuck wagon dinner is a venerated piece of cowboy culture. But you don't have to travel back in time, or even to Texas, to get a taste. Every Saturday evening until Labor Day, Edgewood's Wildlife West ecopark (I-40 and Route 66) rustles up a relaxed, family-style meal with all the fixings—barbecued brisket, chicken, ranch beans, baked potatoes, rolls, apple sauce, cookies and lemonade. (There are vegetarian options, too.) It's served under the stars with a little live country music to aid in digestion. Cost is $20 adults, $19 seniors, $10 kids ages 5 to 11 and free for kids under 5. You'll need to RSVP by 2 p.m. the day of the meal: Do it at (877) 981-WILD (9453) or wildlifewest.org.
