Netflix’s new interface borrows a page from Google Play Movies & TV

If you turn on Netflix tonight and you notice that the interface looks like Google Play Movies & TV, don’t worry, you aren’t in an episode of Black Mirror or, worse, mistakenly entered the world of the Upside Down - Netflix has gotten a face lift. The change in the user interface is part of a small update coming to all Netflix apps on TV platforms. If the former looks familiar, it’s because it’s a similar layout to other streaming services including the old Amazon Fire TV UI and Google Play Movi

Steam has made changes to its ‘Upcoming Releases’ tab

"If you follow a developer or publisher with a new game coming out, the Upcoming Releases page will feature those games,"

Ys: Memories of Celceta is coming to PC this July

Localization specialist Xseed Games announced the PC port of Ys: Memories of Celceta earlier this year, promising a summer release. According to Celceta's newly minted Steam page , Xseed was right on the money: the long-awaited PC port is now scheduled to release next month on July 25.

Similar tools exist, such as Steam Calculator, though that tool only estimates the worth of your account: this one tells you, to the cent, how much you've spent. The Steam tool also has one other important caveat: it won't include codes you've redeemed. Folk on the PC Gamer staff have s
