This week's Super Joystiq Podcast appreciates a glorious beard.

If you are not completely satisfied with all this great content, maybe you would like a chance at scoring some free games? And by some, we mean nine(!) of them. Jump past the break for details on this week's PlayStation Vita launch lineup giveaway.

*Note: We had a slight technical issue with Richard's file this week so it's not quite up to the regular quality. Recording audio is more finicky than you might think at times. All will be back to normal next week.
