Chrome 68 will make annoying 'Add to Home screen' banners less conspicuous

Since the version 42 beta, Chrome for Android has included a pop-up banner allowing you to add a website shortcut (or Progressive Web App) to the home screen of your phone for easier access. While useful, the banner is unfortunately rather obtrusive, taking up too much space on the screen and getting in the way of the content you're trying to view. Thankfully, Chrome's developers have a solution to this problem.

Terra Battle 2 is shutting down in North America, already taken off the Play Store

As of last night, you can no longer download Mistwalker Corporation's tile-based RPG Terra Battle 2 if you live in the US, even if you've installed the game before. Considering this title was only recently released in the US at the tail end of last year, this announcement is a bit of a surprise. At the very least you can still play if you already have it installed, as the service will be up until September 3rd. Past that date, the game will be totally dead in North America.

Square Enix has given up on the GO series, will not be making any more

In a recent PCGamesInsider.biz interview with Square Enix Montreal's studio head Patrick Naud, it was revealed that the studio is no longer working on the GO franchise. In my mind this news does not point towards a positive direction for the company, at least when it comes to their mobile titles. Obviously games with an upfront price do not earn nearly as much on Android as the many free-to-play titles out there, but does that mean premium games aren't worth the trouble? Well, it would seem so, at least for Square Enix Montreal.
