[UPDATE: We're live at Joystiq.com/Twitch... but we're not playing The Crew! The beta is currently down, but we're still giving away a ton of codes for when the beta is back up.]

The end of July is dangerous for the Joystiq crew. As the heat continues to climb and the days stretch on and on, our lust for summer adventure reaches its zenith. We want to fill the car with mixtapes and take to the open road, wearing nothing but swimsuits, sunglasses, and bravery! How could we possibly abandon our audience, though? We can't rightly stream video games for you if we're tearing up the asphalt from here to Kalamazoo! The Crew, Ubisoft's open-nation racing game in beta testing this week, must slake our thirst for a road trip. Plus, you can join us!

Starting at 4PM EST on Joystiq.com/Twitch, Joystiq's newly formed racing team will take to The Crew beta to put it through its paces. Xav de Matos, Richard Mitchell, and Anthony John Agnello will be tearing up the road. Meanwhile, Alexander Sliwinski will be doling out a few dozen beta codes in the chat. How do you get the codes? Just show up and hang out.

Joystiq Streams broadcasts every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST, and many other times when it strikes our fancy. Never miss a stream by following us on Twitch!
