3DPornReviews 2018 VR Porn Wrap Up!

Happy New Years Meatbeaters!

Sup guys!

After spending the holidays migrating the server over to new hosting and chasing down a few bugs effecting the video playbackz, I'm finally gettin a chance to sit down on this last day of December 2018 to do an end of the year look-back post.

No "Top" Movies List This Year

Where I generally do a top 10, 25 or something movies list to finish up the year....I don't really feel like I watched enough of the content this year to be as fair about it as I have been in the past years where I watched a whole lot more of the movies.  I know for a fact I missed some great scenes that wouldn't be right to pass over on any sort of list for 2018, so this years post is going to be more personal I think, more the highlights for me this year, based on what I watched, and in particular, some of the performances I was stoked on. 

50% Less Reviews in 2018

Where I reviewed around 100 movies respectively in both 16' and 17',  2018 saw me taking a step back to about half of that, having reviewed around 50 scenes, and that was about where I wanted it to be both as a viewer and a writer for what was nearing my 5th year watching VR porn and 3rd year of writing about it. 

Gettin' Burrrrrrnt Out On Newb VR

2018 for me, was kind of hitting the wall on "bad VR", meaning, my tolerance level for nubby mistakes from production crews that are not as proficient as shooting VR Porn hit an all time low, and I found myself on more than one occasion, sitting down with the intention to watch a scene to review, making it about 5 minutes and going........nope. Done. Burnt on the same old unimaginative, unresponsive to viewer preferences.....shit! (no disrespect to tha ladies!)

2 scenes that exemplified nubby VR for me this year, taking two otherwise money VR performers, and achieving totally lackluster scenes with them were the above scenes from VRBangers.  Kimmy Granger's scene was shot entirely in everyone's favorite position to view action in VR.....STANDING, and Zoey Monroe's scene was plagued by large scale due to yet another rig change this year at Bangers, and a poor PoV setup. Huge fan of both girls, and I was super bummed about overscaled buttsex with Zoey in particular.  

Many scenes this year at Bangers featured a lazy single PoV setup which doesn't really cut it in 2018 in my book, nor does the tendency to shoot footage further from the rig than the shooters that understand what proximity brings to adult VR. People were saying "get closer" and "less lean back" in 2015 and there is still a disconnect from the culture I feel like at VRBangers in regard to things like that and an example of what I mean by nubby VR.

WankzVR Starts 18' in a Blurry Haze

At the start of 2018, I was getting pretty fried on the out of focus issues WankzVR began having on their rig in late 17', that then wound bleeding into 2018 movies and that led me to tapping out on WVR for awhile during that period, though I did catch some excellent scenes such as Pinball Wizard and Tease Me Baby where the performances outshined the focus issues. If you squinted hard enough! Anastasia Knight was a standout in 18', and cutie pie Emma Hix killed every scene I saw her in this year. 

Flash of Lightning at VRBangers

I love me some Ella Nova and wound up super stoked on her performance in Blow Dried for VRBangers this year, where she just dripped sexy and played the part of the horny hairdresser to the T.  The image on the rig looked quite nice, and the one position seated shot worked fine for the barbershop/salon premise as did the in-public feel.  I was hopeful for a minute that things might pick up in 2018 for Bangers but in the end, this was the only one of a good half dozen scenes I caught at Bangers this year that impressed me and a good bit of that was simply Ella Nova bringing the A1 sauce. 

Rollin Solo with BabeVR

During the blur period at WankzVR, I started to get curious about the solo scenes poppin up at BabeVR and decided to drop in and check a few out, despite solo not really bein my jam in VR— simply because I feel most solo content has been shot pretty poorly up to this point.  I caught a great performance from Charlotte Stokely up front, and over the next few months watched quite a few scenes at BabeVR that turned out to be among my absolute favorite performances of the year.

Sasha Heart & Georgia Jones... /bitesknuckles

My 2 personal favorite scenes this year on the performance tip came from Sasha Heart and Georgia Jones who both managed to get to me bigtime with super engaging performances that played really strongly to the solo VR format. Georgia's scene, beyond some technical stuff.....I would honestly rate a full on solo GFE or about as near as you can get to it, and her VR kissing technique, for me anyway, is about the best I have ever experienced.  Sasha blew me away with a turn it on and off like a light switch delivery, and knocked it out of the park in terms of eye contact and working the camera.  I was like a pig in shit when Babe had Sasha back again for their first anal scene a few months later and hoping they have Georgia back soon for a more well lit vid in 19'.   Top shelf performances for 2019 for me.

Other Memorable Scenes From BabeVR

Other personal highlights from BabeVR this year were scenes from Jenna Sativa, Charlotte Stokely, Bailey Rayne as well as two girls I was super stoked to see in VR, Sabina Rouge and Kenna James... Sabina starring with sexy Xandra Sixx in BabeVR's first 2 girl scene. I got pretty busy in the Fall/Winter and missed a couple of scenes with Reena Sky in particular that I would have loved to have watched but it was good to see them continue to try to mix things up with new shots like doggy and missionary as the year wound up at BabeVR. Didn't expect it at the start of 2018, but BabeVR fuckin killed it this year on casting and if they could get a decent moving steady rig goin in 19' they could continue to expand the recipe nicely I feel like. 

Proper Flat Fucking Cowgirl

Shoutout to Czech VR for following the flat on back cowgirl shot to its logical conclusion and being pretty much the first crew to hard tilt the rig up in this position starting with Jureka Del Mar in Chinese Massage Parlor, providing something that approximates realistic PoV sight lines from this position........where you cannot see your dick in real life.  Upside down Missionary, Overhanging Cowgirl, Improved Cowgirl.......whatever you want to call it, those of us that place a premium on 1st person camera angles that don't scream bullshit in VR were stoked to see someone finally do this, and it wasn't long before WankzVR was also placing some hard tilts on some these shots as well. 

Favorite Cosplay Scenes

Beyond beta viewing a whole lot of WhorecraftVR scenes, I didn't watch much on the cosplay side this year, but 2 standout titles for me would be Blondie Fesser in Jessica Rabbit from VRCosplayX and Francys Belle in Caveman's Meat from Reality Lovers.  Jessica Rabbit, I enjoyed everything from the lighting, music and atmosphere, to Blondie's perfect character performance, and with Caveman's meat, despite some hot audio, I thought it was the best case example for a decent looking Green screen environment for a VR porn, that I have seen to date. The cave effect, was pretty badass I thought, in terms of actually making you feel like you were standing in a fully 3D cave and for the first time, I felt like the juice was actually worth the squeeze in terms of going with a Green screen production for VR Porn. 

VirtualRealPorn dropped Despacito in 2018 and it was good to see them vary the formula some and step out into some new directions like this after 4 years in the game. This one wound up being a memorable movie from 2018 for me and the first legit 1st person VR DP I had seen. VirtualRealPorn look to be mixing things up quite a bit as 2018 closes out, rocking a cleaner looking image and regularly breaking the 50 minute mark of late, so I'm looking forward to checking out some scenes in 2019. 

MilfVR Was Money

Pretty much everything I caught this year from MilfVR was money, from the debut of WankzVR's new rig with Riley Reyes, to memorable performances from Anna Bell Peaks and Vanessa Cage, MilfVR just felt like it was on simmer status and I didn't even get time to watch some of their hottest scenes of 18' like Milfy It's Cold Outside, Stepmom's Little Helper and Bargain Banging. 

Czech VR Perfection

Over at Czech VR, 2 of my absolute favorites from 2018 were Horny Morning and Live Chat Girl Caught, both of which showed off some amazeballz camera work from Czech VR production.  I have the highest respect for the crew/s at Czech VR and scenes like these to me show off just how far ahead they are in some senses with VR porn production and I cannot wait until moving rigs become more the norm in VR porn.  You can really pull off some tasty effects with a good steady rig.  2 of my favorite scenes technically speaking from 2018 and great performances from Lucy Li and Lolee Love as well as the crew on what amount to almost one-shot scenes. 

Other Memorable Performances at WankzVR

As the year wound up at WankzVR, I got pretty busy, and missed quite a few scenes I would like to have checked out, but loved Kali Roses in Kali-fornication, Paige Owens in Full Paige Spread, and one of the breakout VR performers for me this year, the adorable and personable Gracie May Green in Where Credit's Due. 

Alina Lopez at BaDoinkVR

Probably my favorite scene from BaDoinkVR from 2018 would have to be Pool Cues featuring Alina Lopez who is pretty darned good at the whole virtual porno thing.  Where many of the earlier 2018 BaDoinkVR scenes felt a bit formulaic to me, as well as lacking on the PoV factor, Pool Cues saw them mix up the cake batter some and saw Alina bringing her VR A game poolside. 

Adriana Chechik at VRHush

Adriana Chechik is one of my favorite performers to watch get down and I thought the standout scene for fans of hers this year would have to have been her squirtastic anal scene for VRHush.  It was just pure Bratnasty for yer filthy virtual pleasure and other than some janky feeling edits, I thought it was pretty great for Adriana fans and probably my favorite DIRTY scene this year really.

Lethal Hardcore VR

As I mentioned above, I beta/QC'd a lot of scenes for Stoney Curtis at Whorecraft/LethalHardcoreVR this year, and while I have still yet to come around on the WCVR green screen vision, LethalHardcoreVR is much more my speed.  Adult Empire is not really holding up their end of the bargain in my eyes on the whole delivery side of things on the WCVR/LHCVR website, but it was nice to see the production side of things make some rapid progress this year and they turned out some solid scenes/performances with the likes of Elena Koshka, Ashley Lane, Emma Hix and Danni Rivers. Lethal could be a cool studio in 19, we'll have to see if Adult Empire can pick up the ball on the delivery side of things moving foward.

Best Production

The king of VR Porno..... Mr. Jimmy Lifestyles

Last but definitely not least in VR porn.....the production. Without a good shooter in VR, you don't got Jack Jack and for my money, gotta hand it to both Jimmy Lifestyles at WankzVR, as well as the unnamed shooters at Czech VR in 2018 as being the most proficient crews in VR porn, both of them turning out the highest level of craftsmanship and scene design in the VR porn game on the regular in my estimation.  These 2 crews are the trailblazers in my mind that keep pushing the envelope out, trying new ideas, and trying to keep up with what the bros at home are jammin on and they both deserve a ton of credit for making something look easy, that many others tend to make look difficult. 

Happy New Years To All Yall!

Whelp....that's about a wrap on my 2018 fellas, I'ma smoke me some fine African sativa and chub some grub! Thanks for stopping by the site this year and wishing everyone a Happy New Year and all the best in 2019!  Dirty D
