WHAT’S IN A FIGHT?
By Bill Lara
Mafia Wars has always been a place where confrontations ad trash talk have always been the order of the day. But, I must say that as time has passed and, the game the people we get to mingle with while playing the game change with it. I guess it takes being around for a while to really begin relizing that , in the end the game is just that, only a game.
I find that extremely refreshing. Just recently I had a small misunderstanding that led to a little trash talking but, as soon as both parties had a couple of hour to cool off, both of us were ready to talk lik e the reasonable adults we otherwise are away from the “killing fields”. I have never felt better about the game and the people in it.
My dear, dear friends (Special thanks to Sasha, Scrappy,Lana and the rest of the gang. You are my favorite crime fighting pooches of all time!) jumped to defend me at the first hint of an issue and, of course that is always heartwarming. But, the best part was being able to connect and eventually friend the other player. I will not specifically name him because at the time of this writing, I had not asked his permission to do so but, I had to take the opportunity to thank him for his good nature and honorable behavior so, thank you again Greg, you are indeed a gentleman and, I am very, very happy to have made your acquaintance. It is folks like you that make the difference for us all, in how we perceive and enjoy Mafia Wars.
Ok faithful readers, this week i have streamlined the post a little bit more so as to save you so many details. Please remember to send in you comment, ssuggestions and ideas directly to me or, as comments on this blog. I will try to get around to them in the same order as they come in.

Good news Zynga players, two of your favorite games are now available on “the large screen” for even bigger fun! Zynga announces the availability of Hanging With Friends and Dream Heights is now optimized in a special HD version for the iPad. So now it’s time to ‘hang’ out, and play with your friends to build really tall buildings and plunge into lava – all on the big screen.
Valentine’s Day might have been yesterday, but love is still in the air here at Zynga. It all started when Zynga met Slingo, and Zynga Slingo was born!
Did you know that underneath your favorite Zynga games such as Words With Friends, CityVille and FarmVille is some serious tech? We’re talking one of the world’s largest uses of cloud computing and enough data processed to store 10x the amount of movies in Netflix in HD. Heck, we help players deliver more gifts than Santa. Check out some of these tech-defying stats in our first ever techno-graphic. That’s technology + infographic. See what we did there?
It’s a dream come true for Android users – Dream Zoo is now available to download in the Android Market, giving even more players the opportunity to take a walk on the wild side. Zynga’s first zoo themed game and the first in its ‘Dream’ series of mobile social games, Dream Zoo will now be available cross-platform, giving players on Android and iOS devices the ability to connect with more friends and widen their community of fellow zookeepers.
While ‘triple word score,’ tiles and romance might not go hand-in-hand, Words With Friends’ players say differently. In just three days, over 100,000 players were polled in game – showcasing the sheer mass of Words With Friends. In our favorite game of crossword combat, word warriors were surveyed in Zynga’s first wide-scale poll about dating, doting and even cheating. 44% of players surveyed claimed they have gone for more than just the gold in Words With Friends, and flirted with another player in-game.
