Update: Relive the entire day with our YouTube playlist above, featuring all six-plus hours of streaming!

When it comes crashing down, and it hurts inside/ya' gotta take a stand, it don't help to hide/Well, you hurt Joystiq's friends, and you hurt Joystiq's pride/I gotta be a website/we can't let it slide/Joystiq is a real American/Fight for the rights of every man/Joystiq is a real American, fight for what's right, fight for your life!

WOOOO! Yeah! Joystiq is ready to get up, grill a seitan burger and march right into the nearest furniture store to take advantage of patriotic weekend sales, because it's Independence Day, y'all. Joystiq's an international operation, what with our South African editor-in-chief and a profoundly talented British editor to boot. This weekend, though, we're totally American. So American we're going to refuse to use the metric system and we're going to play video games all day for your amusement.

Starting at 10AM EST, Joystiq is streaming games at Joystiq.com/Twitch until we decide to stop. What's on tap? Well we're going to start with Broforce. Then we're going to play some Space Channel 5 Part 2 to get real patriotic. Then, well, you're just going to have to tune in to find out. It may involve the referenced theme song above.

JOIN US! JOYSTIQ.COM/TWITCH! 10AM EST UNTIL THE STARS GO OUT!
