Inside Social Games has released the top 25 Facebook games for January and Zynga’s CityVille has gone straight to the top of the charts, overtaking FarmVille, which until recently, seemed darn near impossible. The real question is how long CityVille will stay at the top or if this number is inflated due to extra promotion and the ‘new’ness of it all.
Other newcomers to January’s Top 25 list include PopCap’s Zuma Blitz, which is a timed version of the classic PC game,and CrowdStar’s uber girly game, It Girl, which grew 1.2 million last month.
the-mafia-wars-guide.com wrote an interesting article to help us decide which faction to take in the new country launch of mafia wars: bangkok, yakuza or triad?
As you work through the episodes in Bangkok, in addition to having to choose sides between the Yakuza and the Triads, you can also earn faction points as you do jobs. This faction can be used to buy several good items and even some businesses:
When you do a job, you can get +3 faction for whatever side you help, and -1 faction for the opposing side:
Loot Items bring Strength:
There are many loot items that have great strengths in attack and defense. Where to find these loot items and to target them, helps you raise your strength numbers. Knowing what your strength numbers are and what will raise these numbers is the first step towards gaining strength in Mafia Wars. Ever wondered how to tell what your strength numbers in defense and attack are?
These are my strength numbers today:
When you first start Mafia Wars you have the option of fearless, maniac, and mogul. You can only choose one and you can’t change it after. Moguls get more wealth, Maniacs get more energy, Fearless get more health
Greedy people like me think choosing Mogul matters. After many levels, like 40, having too much money won’t matter in this game! It made me regret not choosing Maniac. So you newbie, choose Maniac! Too bad you can’t change your option afterwards.
