Square Enix Ports The PSP Remake Of Fan Favorite 'Final Fantasy Tactics' To Android For $13.99

Final Fantasy Tactics was an oddball when it was first released for the PlayStation in 1997 - ostensibly a member of the never-repeating (at the time) Final Fantasy series, the game broke from the familiar turn-based battles with a new isometric system that put a huge emphasis on tactical positioning and strategic use of classes and attack ranges. While FFT never got the attention of the standard numbered RPGs in the series, it became a sleeper hit, and the original was kept alive with a few sequels and remakes.

Square set out to make memory leaks easier to track down and fix with a new library called LeakCanary. It makes leak detection almost automatic and presents results in both logcat and an easy-to-read interface.

Square Enix Releases Champ Man 15, The Frowniest Soccer Management Game Ever, On The Play Store

Pardon me, readers. This is usually where I make a distinction to point out the fact that most of the world calls its favorite sport football.
