The Voters Have Spoken: EA Is Your Worst Company In America For 2012! - The Consumerist | Stuff that Tweaks | Scoop.it

There have even been numerous accusations that EA and its ilk deliberately hold back game content with the sole intent of charging a fee for it at a later date. It's one thing to support a game with new content that is worth the price. It's another to put out an inferior — and occasionally broken — product with the mindset of "ah, we'll fix it later and make some money for doing so."

Read a Hilarious Skit Joss Whedon Wrote About Sexism and Evil Robots

Read a Hilarious Skit Joss Whedon Wrote About Sexism and Evil Robots | Stuff that Tweaks | Scoop.it

"This was a terrible idea for me to do all this [at the same time]," Whedon acknowledged to Vulture. "But it's very important to me ... It's hard to have a sense of humor in situations like this, but it's crucial. You have to challenge the status quo, because people don't want to talk about [sexism]. The status is not quo." As for those sketches he wrote, Whedon explained, "The point is to put a dramatic face on [the issue] while at the same time come out with a kooky evil robot from the future." And he did exactly that in the following skit, starring Daphne Zuniga as herself and UCB actor Neil Casey as a chintzy-looking evil robot. Vulture transcribed it for you ... enjoy!
