Playdate: We're livestreaming 'Forza Horizon 2' on Xbox One! (Update: it's over!)

Welcome, ladygeeks and gentlenerds, to the new era of gaming. The one where you get to watch, and comment, as other people livestream gameplay from next-gen consoles. Because games! They're fun!

What do you do when there's many hundreds of horsepower under your foot? Bounce on the pedal and put the devil to the floor, naturally. And that's just what Microsoft's latest racer allows you to do. We're talking about Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One, of course. The game that lets you live out nearly any auto-fantasy you might have, so long as it includes picturesque European landscapes, pristine cliff sides and electronic dance music. We're just kidding on the last part -- you can totally turn the radio off. Join us right here at 7:00 p.m. Eastern / 4:00 p.m. Pacific as we bring you a taste of what you can expect from the open-world arcade racer when it hits store shelves (or your console) next week.
