Big Fat Diary

I'll be in Nigeria until the 22nd. I've never been before, so my expectations of Africa are based on what I've seen in games. The rainforest will provide a chance for me to observe new DX10 real-time shadowing effects, although this opportunity may be spoilt by the African people's fondness of survival horror and as such their insistence that the brightness should always be turned up to maximum. I hear the first few levels may be worse than Daikatana, with lots of annoying incessantly nibbling insects that I'll need to deal with - at least there will be plenty of Rhinos to provide RAM.

I expect no surprises on my trip, and to come back home having learned nothing new - I already have the guide, after all.
