Shadow of the Colussus Movie

Shadow of the Colossus was one of the most interesting videogames ever developed, but I don't see how it would make for a worthwhile film, even if it did have a worthy writer handling the script. It played on strengths unique to the medium of gaming, and turning it into a movie would be like trying to write the novel version of the Mona Lisa.

As for Pirhana 2...well, enjoy. It's like a cross between Aliens and Titanic!

England is the latest victim to be suckered by Austrian treachery. I swear, Austria has caused more whiffed support orders than I'd have thought imaginable. And for whatever reason, people keep believing him.

In any case, England lost ground, ceding Moscow to Austria. He also finally turned on France. He's been kicking himself for trusting the Hapsburg swine, and even more so for losing the greater meta-game of chicken he was playing with France.

France took a chunk out of Austria, and is well situated to fend off the English aggression with a new fleet in Brest. Not only did he take a commanding lead heading into the endgame, he still has momentum toward expansion, whereas England is bottlenecked on every front.

Looking at the orders, it's clear that Austria convinced England to support him against France. Instead, he bit a slice out of England. No reasonable scenario has Austria winning this game, but he is still in prime position to play kingmaker.

Turkey and Russia cling to survival in Asia Minor.
