The Super Joystiq Podcast specials just keep coming. Today, we have two interviews focusing on very different parts of the industry. First up, Anthony talks to Games for Change President and CEO Asi Burak, SoundSelf developer Robin Arnott, and Gigantic Mechanic's Gregory Trefry about the Games for Change initiative, and how video games can push for social change and be more than just entertainment.

In part 2, Xav checks in on Star Citizen from PAX East with Chris Roberts and Erin Roberts. The Roberts Space Industries duo discuss the progress on Star Citizen, how crowdfunding has changed their approach to development, feature creep, and how games can provide more freedom and artistic opportunities than Hollywood.

Listen to the Super Joystiq Podcast: Relevant links are available after the break.
