Dear Diary, it is only Day 7 of The Summer of Endless E3 but I fear it may never end. Stops are continually added on this perpetual march, seemingly quicker than the events themselves take place.

What should we expect when we’re expecting? Word comes via Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest (which is partnered up with this Stadia Connect) that we’ll see “some of the games coming later this year and a few surprises.”
It’s about time Stadia makes good with the exclusives if it wants broader appeal as a platform. Securing Serious Sam 4 for a while was a nice touch but it needs more stuff like that. Will more in that vein will be announced on July 14? Maybe, but Google didn’t do much to propagate the idea.
