We’re back for day 2 of Summer Game Fest! Our first reveal stream is Netflix Geeked Week: Gaming which promises to announce both games and shows being made by Netflix. We’re not sure what to expect either!
While we’re a games website, we will report on any shows Netflix announces this stream in order to provide a thorough recap of the entire event.
