Play FIFA Superstars free on Facebook now

With the 2010 World Cup set to kick off in a weeks time. Social Game maker Playfish has launched a new FIFA World Cup game on Facebook called FIFA Superstars. 


Please click here to play now. 


Although FIFA Superstars is free to play, players are required to purchase packs containing squad members that cost £1 - £2 per pack. As the tournament progresses, however, your squad members are awarded points that can then be used to purchase new team additions.


You can also play against your Facebook friends. 



As the tournament progresses, each player earns points which can also be used to purchase team members.

Unlike console-based versions of Fifa games in which the player can decide to play as a manager, a player or both, on Facebook players can only be managers of virtual teams made up of real players from around the world.

They can also opt to participate in league games outside of their "friends" network.

"The Facebook version is a strategy game," said Playfish chief executive Kristian Segerstrale.

"It extends the Fifa franchise by enabling you to play with friends."

It will also reflect events as they unfold in the World Cup said Mr Segerstrale, although the details are yet to be announced.

There will be a new edition of the console version of Fifa at a later date.

Social media games developer Playfish was bought by Fifa makers Electronic Arts (EA) for $300m (£170m) in 2009.



Their Page bio on Facebook has this to say




Build your dream team by signing the world's best football players to your club. Upkeep your training and customize your formation to work your way to the top. Don't forget to challenge your friends to 1v1 matches and brag about your victory!


Welcome to FIFA Superstars!



Playfish is one of the world's largest and fastest growing social games companies. The company combines creativity, innovation and originality to create games for friends to play together over social platforms such as Facebook. Playfish's mission is to change the way people play games by providing more social and connected experiences.




How do you improve your overall team rating? Purchase the best players in the world! Gold players are available by clicking 'add players' from the Manage screen! Can you sign your favourite player?

FarmVille Bushels and Farmer's Market

FarmVille now has a farmer's market. So if you are at level 15 or higher the farmer's market allows you to collect bushels from harvested crops that can be used to get bonuses for yourself or give them to neighbors. To collect bushels all you need to do is harvest your regular crops in the same way you can harvest bunches from flower crops. You will be able to collect bushel;s from all permanent crops available in the market. Once you find your first bushel you will get a market stall. If you do not wish to wait you also purchase a market stall in the building section of the market for either coins or farm cash. The limit to market stalls is five. You farm can have a maximum of five stalls. Each stall you have can sell one type of crop. Once you have your market stalls in place you can then start collecting bushels to use yourself or let your neighbors collect by harvesting your crops. 


To access the market stalls menu you would need to select farmers market from it's pull down menu. Inside you can see what bushels you've collected from your neighbors under the my bushels section. What bushels your neighbors have available in the get bushels section and what bushels your stall is currently offering in the my stalls section. Clicking the get bushels button will show you what bushels all your neighbors are currently offering. Clicking any available bushels will display a list of bushels that each neighbor has available and how long their stall is open for. Selecting a specific neighbor will take you to their stall. Bushels taken from your friends stall are added to your inventory and can be seen in the my bushels section of your stall. 


Once you collect bushels either from your farm or your neighbors they are all stored in your inventory. You can hold up to 50 bushels in your inventory. Each bushel can be shared or used. Clicking the "Share" button on any bushel will allow you to offer up a number of bushels of your choosing to your friends via a feed. Clicking the "Use" button consumes one of the bushels and gives you a bonus. The type of bonus will depend on whether you have access to the crop or not. If the bushel used came from a crop that you did plant you receive a bonus of +1 mastery whenever that crop is harvested on your farm for two hours. If you have already mastered this crop the bonus is +1 Experience Point per harvest. If you use the bushel of a crop that you are not high enough of a level to play in you'll receive a licence to plant that crop that lasts for 2 hours. 


Whenever neighbors use your stall you can choose to receive a reward of your choice. If you neighbors have used your market stall an arrow will point to the appropriate stall. Viewing the interior of your stall will show you the three rewards that you can choose from. Coins, Fuel and Experience Points (XP).

PetVille Attic and Tahiki beaches now available.

All Attics have now been unlocked in PetVille. You do however need to be at level 10 at least before you can enter and play around. So if you have crossed level 10 and have gained entry into the attic you have a few surprises in store. You also need keys to enter Tahiki. Once you enter your attic to explore you are asked for keys to visit Tahiki. The beaches of Tahiki are locked unless you open them with the keys. 


How do you get keys the answer is very simple ask your friends. The locks are of different colors and you need the corresponding colored key to open it. We see yellow, blue, orange, green and purple locks and these are the colored keys you need to open the beaches of Tahiki. 


Once your friends send you keys they would be kept in your storage area. Click on the key and drag it to the lock to open. 


So go on now and unlock the magic doors.


Magic Doors are available only in your attic.

Mafia Wars Subterfuge Crates

Mafia Wars has launched brand new subterfuge crates in the Marketplace. Crates are filled with limited edition items and users will love. The pictures below show a Con Man, Fake ID and Poison filled ring. The art of subterfuge is to dodge and escape.




The Subterfuge Crates are available in the same setup as other crates in the game, and can be purchased either one at a time, or in groups of three. A single Subterfuge Crate costs 12 Reward Points, and the trio costs 35, for a savings of a single Reward Point when buying in bulk.



Either way, you have a 10% chance of receiving a Rare item from your crate, a 30% chance of finding something Uncommon and a 60% chance of finding a Common item. Some of the items you might find within are Con Men, Poison-Filled Rings, or even Fake IDs.

What did you receive inside your Subterfuge Crate? Let us know in the comments – we’d love to hear if you thought it was worth it!

PetVille Enchanted Crates







PetVille has released the enchanted mystery crate and it comes for 30 pet cash about $2.50. Each crate has one of possible 8 enchanted gifts inside it. By the looks from the picture below it is possible to see a purple tree surrounded by lights, a castle and a shield.




Users however are reacting quiet strongly to this whole price thing. 30 PetVille cash is quiet a lot of money and users are starting to complain. 




Below are a few statements from users on PetVille's Facebook page





I think they need to explain exactly what is in each crate. What EXACTLY are the enchanted items? And guarantee no duplicates. Seriously Zynga 30 for each times 6 is 180. That alone is ridiculous but to take a chance on getting two of the same. No way





I  have alot of trouble getting petville cash! And its not easy getting petville cash!!! The only reason why the ppl who built petville make it hard to get petville cash is because they want real money, they get real money when ppl buy the PV Cash! I Am not buying PV Cash!! This is starting to get stupid!!!!
