Meh, visually it's satisfying. They might need to optimize the loading time, but other then that it looks quite nice. Having said that, I kinda miss the index page for each individual platform and the option for changing the background color (I favored black). Still, this is one of the better overhauls I've seen. YouTube and Kotaku isn't in that category unfortunately..
You ave the option to change background color.
The slider I circled in red allows you to change form black to white. Just click it.
