Zafo - Lonely Princess





Zafo returns with a new set to destroy your childhood. While her street-urchin boyfriend is off playing with half-naked male genies, a lonely Princess Jasmine borrows Abu the monkey for a bit revenge sex playtime. But then her pet tiger Rajah decides he wants in on the action too! It's 43 pics of the way the movie should have been at mongo-bongo-art.com. And remember all sales go directly to the artist! And aardvarks. Also Zafo has moved some of his older sets into a $10 package deal, so grab it if you don't already have them!



And of course there's also that other thing that everybody is busy doing - Witcher III. So after my review of W2:AoK figured I'd give my opinion on the new game. Cuz I know that your life revolves around my opinion on various random things (that's sarcasm for those that need to be told). Anyway, I must say I am rather impressed with the game. Almost everything I bitched about in the last game they fixed for this one. Combat is much much MUCH more fluid and responsive. Though it was possibly made a little too easy. Even on Hard you can mow shit down fairly easily. But better that than retardedly sluggish controls and shitty fight set-ups. The fast travel fixes alot of the pointless walking, and plenty of dungeons/quests tend to loop so you end up back where you started. There is still a bit of tedious walking/riding around just to get places. But that is a necessary evil of having an "open world".

Goes without saying that the graphics are incredible, and they fortunately toned down the bloom this time. But they are kinda infatuated with the idea of camera lens effects - water drops on a camera lens, dirt and dust on a camera lens, etc. Maybe I'm weird (maybe? lol), but I just don't see the point in the constant effort to make CG mimic film. They are different genres/methods. It's like trying to mimic oil painting with water colours. Why? But I digress (shocker!).

So the story is once again solid and in-depth. But the presentation does still seem to be lacking at times. Not that it's bad, it just seems like it could be done better. Even knowing the game backstory and history, things can get kinda foggy and weird with all the who? what? where? why? And all the necessary side-quests tend to detract from the sense of urgency and drama. Which can occasionally make the enforced drama-moments fall somewhat flat. But again, necessary evil of open game worlds I guess. And on another story note - there is some silly immersion breaking bullshit. Chaining from "gotta get the super rare trading card", to "Zed's dead, baby", to "Snow White and the 7 Dwarves", did start to head into shark-jumping territory.

Characterizations were pretty fantastic. For me Cerys completely stole the show. And Yen was pretty awesome as well. The other Witchers were great, though Vesemir was a bit over-done in the whole father-figure role. The random accents were a bit weird though. Like where does Ciri's english accent come from? Or Triss's perky upbeat all-American-girl accent? And speaking of Triss she did kinda come across as a complete ditz in this game. Which was a bit of a letdown after being such a stellar character in the previous game. So yeah.

Regardless, overall it's a pretty great game. Enjoyable and highly recommend it. So much so, that I of course had to do some fan art.

Zen - Night Trips






And another Zen set! The full complete uncensored version. Carina’s nightmares continue with a revisit from demonic clown Balto, who still delights in teaching Carina the joys of bondage. And this time, he also pulls her friend into the dream to entertain a well-hung Minotaur. Using his dream magic, the clown clones himself to double Carina's pleasure. Reluctant at first, she quickly learns to enjoy the role of submissive little slut as she losses her anal virginity in this “dream”. It's 81 pics of nightmarish pleasure at mongo-bongo-art.com.

Featuring such classics as bondage, submission, restraints, oral, vaginal and anal sex, double penetration, hair pulling, monster sex, sweaty skin, huge cock, cum shots (including facial, ass/back cum, internal anal and internal vaginal), and pregnant. And it comes in both non-text and comic/story versions. Remember all sales go directly to the Zen, and he gets the most out of the purchase when you buy direct form his store.

And one thing I really have to stress is that Zen did an insanely awesome job with sweaty skin. Seriously, the set is worth buying for those pics alone. Everything else is just whip cream and gravy on top... wait, no, that sounds disgusting. Whip cream and cherries? Gravy and bacon? Whatever. The pics are fantastic, and you should buy the set.



Ok, so saw Fury Road today. And I'll tell you straight up, it's shit. Terrible fucking movie. Beyond Thunderdome was a better movie. Anyway, read some of the reviews a couple days ago, and thought "Wow, okay so maybe I was wrong, maybe it'll be awesome!". But a quote from the movie actually has relevance here - "Give up on hope, it only leads to madness". And I had hope it was gonna be good. And now I'm mad that it wasn't. Touche, movie, touche.

So y'know how normally I'm a bit coy about spoilers in these reviews? I try to mislead and obfuscate the spoiler. Fuck that. I will spoil the fuck out of this movie so that you don't make the mistake of going to see it. So basic premise is that Max needs to save a bunch of post-apocalypse supermodels from their psycho boyfriend/husband. No seriously, that is the fucking plot. Movie starts with Max and his "last of the V-8 interceptors"... y'know the one that was blown up in Road Warrior? .... 'kay. Anyway he's in his mysteriously reassembled car getting chased by the bad people... and 15 seconds later gets taken out like a bitch. Which is a pretty good allegory to what the movie did to the entire franchise. Except the movie is two tedious fucking hours of bad predictable bullshit.

So Max gets his ass kicked, and is turned into a caged blood donor for the psycho cult crazies who caught him. Cuz like everybody else in the world is dying from radiation. Except Max. And the supermodels. And stump-fetish Charlize Theron. Oh poor Charlize, how low your career has plummeted. Which is a good segueway into her character, since she is in the very next scene. So she is the most honored and badass driver of this cult of crazies. And strangely the only fighting woman among them (spidey sense!). Whatev, just show how badass she must be to rise to the top, right? And she's in command of the giant "war rig", which is just a copy-paste of the tanker truck from Road Warrior. Cuz like creativity sucks and stuff. Anyway turns out she rose to this position so she could escape this crazy bunch of cultists, and take the supermodels with her to a better "green" place. Which coincidentally enough, is a tribe run by women.

Wait. All the crazy cultists are men. The only decent people are women (and Max with his hipster stubble). And the wonderful green place (which later turns out to have been destroyed by men) is inhabited by women. Ohhhhhhh... It's one of THOSE movies. Which would be okay if it were like Sucker Punch (was a fun movie!). Bunch of chicks out kicking ass. Female empowerment. Rah! Rah!... Except it's not. It's the worst, most stereotypical, parts of feminism (note - there are plenty of good and very legit aspects of feminism - this movie does NOT include them) being crammed into your face over and over again throughout the entire film. Remember my ranting about the ham-fisted agenda pushing in Elysium? Pretty much the same fucking thing here. So that kinda turned it to shit. I'm here for a movie. I want a good story. Or at least a fun one. I'm not here to be indoctrinated into shitty vile ideals that are ironically enough the same exact thing they are purporting to fight against. It's just.... Ugghh!! Enough ranting.

So yeah, that was shit. Then the rest of the movie was like they just recycled the Road Warrior. Literally you could just loop the tanker chase scene and you have ALL of Fury Road. And then they added a giant dollop of stupidity on top of it. It's as if they consciously attempted to use as little creativity or brainpower as possible. The giant twin-engine "war-rig" runs just as fast with one engine as with two? Sounds reasonable. And while towing a tank with thousands of gallons of fuel it can out-run a pursuit vehicle? Sure. Why not? I mean that same V8 Interceptor was run down by a giant armored pickup truck in the first minute of the movie. So I guess that makes sense. Somehow. A lifetime of brain-washing can be undone in seconds by the smile of a redhead supermodel? 'Kay. Those same supermodels are enlightened and broad-minded enough to realize that one of the cultists that kept them prisoner in a rape-harem (y'know the one they desperately want to escape), well he was just an innocent victim of brain-washing and none of the batshit crazy stuff he's done is his fault? Not to mention wanting to cuddle with him, cuz who wouldn't want to cuddle with a former captor? Suppose it makes sense when the brain-washing can be undone with the aforementioned smile. Wait, wut? Could go on and on. Too late, I already am, huh? And no, it doesn't have to be a real-life documentary. It's an action movie, it can take liberties with reality. But it does at least need to not be so fucking senselessly stupid.

Oh, and the redeemed "war boy". He dies. Nobly sacrifices himself. Of course. Like that was any surprise. So predictable.



And in other news, with all the hype for the Witcher III: Wild Hunt, it seems there was a sale for the old games. So never having played a Witcher game, picked up Assassin of Kings for a measly three bucks (think the sale ended, sorry). Figured it'd be a great opportunity for more game research. And it proved very instructive. W2:AoK is an excellent example of what NOT to do in a game. It's a bad game. It's a very pretty game. And it has a very good story. But as a game, it's bad.

Controls are very gummy. Combat is slow to respond. Opponents can stun-lock you, while you are unable to do so to them. Boss fights that start in point-blank range after a cutscene. And the bloom. OMG the bloom. Too much bloom is a bad thing. And this game had waaaayy too much bloom. Oh and while the story itself is very good and highly detailed, it is not presented overly well at the end. There is no build-up to the "big reveal". It's just - welcome to the end boss fight, let me explain the whole plot to you, now would you like to fight?

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention - walking simulators do not make good games. Having to clear an area down a path for a quest, and then having to walk all the way back is exceedingly boring. Even more so if it spawns endless trash mobs (looking at you harpies). And spending three minutes staring at Gerald's back as he runs from the inn back to the same exact quest spot for the third time is boring. Loops that keep you engaged the entire time and bring you back to the place you started are good. Just walking to get there and back is not - doesn't fucking matter how pretty the scenery is after you seen it for the umpteenth time.

So yeah. All-in-all not a terribly good game. Don't care what fanbois say. Not good. Do not recommend. Maybe get it if it's $3 again, otherwise pass. Hopefully they fixed all that stuff for Wild Hunt. From the demo vids and early walkthrus looks like they have. But still gonna wait to be sure.

Movie Review & More


So just got back from Avengers 2. Must admit that going in I didn't have high hopes. Kinda figured from the commercials that it was going to be the previous movie with slightly different words - Avengers assemble, have difficulties, and then come together to fight an endless horde of faceless enemies. Which it was... and yet wasn't (spooky). I mean that is the basic premise of the new movie... and the old one. But it had slightly different words this time.... Ugh, not coming out correctly at all. Point is it was well done. To the level where the similarities are enough to keep it familiar, and yet different enough to keep it interesting. Story pulls from the on-going plot of the other movies so things are somewhat contiguous. And in the end it all wraps up as a pretty decent movie.

Does a fair job at balancing out the characters. Whereas last movie was "Iron Man & Friends" this one seems more of a team movie. Though Downey does still get a slightly higher percentage of the screen time / importance. Whatcha gonna do? He sells tickets. Thor, while at least not being made a total bitch this time around, doesn't get much love. Probably cuz Helmsworth was off making that terrible Michael Mann movie (seriously who thought that was a good idea? did they never see Miami Vice?). Lots of time spent on Hawkeye cuz of... well... reasons (no spoiler). Which I guess was okay. Captain America stood in for the comic relief role, but was still fairly badass. Black Widow and Hulk spent most of their time doing romance sub-plot. Hey Marvel! Stop trolling my blog for script ideas you fucking hacks! Called that shit back in 2012. Oh, and Hulk gets punched the fuck out (spoiler). Also got some screentime for Nick Fury and Maria Hill (mmm... Cobie Smulders). Notable absences were Gwyneth Paltrow & Natalie Portman. Guess the acting budget could only be stretched so far. Or maybe they said "Piss off! I don't wanna be in superhero movies no more!".

Some other great stuff in the film. They spent alot of time building up a trope and then subverting it at the end. Which was awesome. Always love that. And did the same to some extent with the whole "once a machine gains intelligence it immediately tries to kill the human race". Would be nice if in some movie they'd try to sit down and have a chat with the AI. But no, instead it's blast first, ask questions later. Which is probably why the machines try to kill us. It's why your car breaks down - it hates you (at least one person's car will have broken down when they read this).

Anyway, it's a good movie. I give it a thumbs up and recommend it. Not the best movie ever. But worth shelling out a few bucks for. Unlike the next film I'll end up reviewing - Mad Max: Fury Road. Which I can pretty much assure you is gonna be fucking terribad terrible. You can tell just from the commercials (because my gut instinct on commercials is never wrong *cough*). But I will sacrifice myself so that you may save yourselves.





And in other news Hibbli released a new set a few days ago. I mean sure I was supposed to do a blog blurb regarding the previous set. But uhhh, yeah. I don't post much LOL. So ummm, go buy the old set and this new one too! Or something. Anyway, in this new one, brunette hottie Lori gets slammed by some demon cock. Probably lots of it. So head on over to Hibbli's site and get all of the sexy sorcerous action!



But what else have I been up to? (ie. y u no pr0n 4 me?)

Well lots and lots of learning. STILL! Came to the horrible conclusion that I have to learn a 3d modelling program. Because trying to create renders based on other people's figures wasn't gonna work. I'd never be able to properly match the looks or clothing. And I can't use the figure itself when it's so low-poly. Plus the figures kinda suck (with poor rigging, excessive badly placed poles, reversed normals, etc) cuz... well... I buy the cheap ones. Good game ready models cost a shit-ton when people put alot of effort into them, and they want to reap the reward of that model making money for somebody else in a game. Funny how that works. So I picked up Blender (it's decent and FREE! - most important) and started some serious learning.

And after many many many tutorials I started to work on my first test model (and who better to use than my postergirl?). Three weeks of retopo, texturing, and lots of re-watching tutorials, and I finally finished. A 14k vert model with only two tris (one in each heel) before triangulating, a kick-ass high-detail texture, Normal/AO/Spec maps, rigged and ready to go. Tossed it into Unity and... worked like charm. So that was awesome. Except realized that it had way too many wasted polys in the arms and legs. And my great high-detail texture didn't serve alot of purpose. Had originally set it up at 4096 (which is huge) with the intention of scaling it down to 2048. But can't really get close enough to see that level of detail in a game anyway. So some wasted effort, but a good start and good learning - and was just a test in any case. Figure I'll be able to narrow it down to a week or less turn-around, which should be good.

Was originally gonna do a web demo of the character. But nobody would want to download the Unity webplayer, and doing it in WebGL doesn't work for everyone (plus it would take forever to load - stupid big textures). So instead just did a pic.

And on top of all that, still schooling myself on Unity. Scripting, shaders, lighting, etc. Plenty of "research". Bloodborne is such a goldmine for ideas. And some rendering as well when it feels like my brain is about to explode. Should have another set finished sometime. No idea when. But 30 pics in, doubtful I'll drop it.

Zen - Cats Pajamas






Another Zen set! Available in the full complete version. Fleeing a lecherous suitor, elf princess Rubithia seeks refuge in the forest -- and finds unexpected release for all her animal desires. Features haughty elves, big boobs, rude groping, landing strip, fingering, licking, oral, vaginal, anal, deep throat, cum-shots, and cat-creature sex. It's 120 pics of epic elfy erotic adventure at mongo-bongo-art.com. And remember all sales go directly to the Zen. So buy it here and now, so he can get the most out of the purchase!

And keep in mind, this is the full complete panther-sex version. Not that weak half-assed shit that other sites try pawn off on you, the discerning customer that you are. You know the sites I'm talking about, the ones that continue to do business and get paid by their card-processors. (Though amusingly enough they do business with the same card processor I do and are mostly likely in the same boat of having significant amounts of money seriously past due.) Fortunately however, we just don't give a shit about "rules" cuz I'm like all xxxhardcore and shit (LOL). No really, it's just cuz I'm lazy, disinterested, don't give a shit, and am hardly bothering with the site at all - as can be evidenced by the fact that out of the last 4 sets posted on the site, 3 have not been done by me. ... Wow that went off on a rambling tangent. Anyway, point is - PANTHER SEX! Cuz that makes everything better!



But there is a method to my lack of rendering. Still slogging away at Unity and game dev stuff. And I should mention, that Unity5 was released beginning of this month. Which while it entails some annoyance at having to relearn and fix little things, also includes something amazingly awesome - you can get the FULL COMPLETE version of Unity completely free. As long as you are NOT making $100K+/year using the program, it's absolutely free. Every feature, every perk, it's all included. So if you ever wanted to play around with game dev, download it and give it a shot.

And there was much rejoicing... or was there?



Well it's been an eventful few days. Blogger decided to back down, kinda/maybe. They aren't gonna set the blogs to private, but the will be "stepping up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn". Whatever the fuck that means. Maybe it just applies to photo porn like with Patreon. Maybe it applies to even just having links to places like my site, or Affect3d, or Rotica. Who knows. It's the usual shit of being vague to keep their options open. So gonna leave the blog here for the moment. Will do the groundwork so I can transfer it to my site if need be. But don't wanna spend the time actually setting it up unless I have to. Got more important stuff to be doing right now - like learning game development. So in any case here's Google's statement on the matter...
An update on the Blogger porn content policy

This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy stating that blogs that distributed sexually explicit images or graphic nudity would be made private.

We’ve received lots of feedback about making a policy change that impacts longstanding blogs, and about the negative impact this could have on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities.

We appreciate the feedback. Instead of making this change, we will be maintaining our existing policies.

Great. Thanks for being indecisively bad, Google.




In other news, there was the FCC vote on the whole net neutrality thing. Which is yet another giant tangled mess. Should service providers be able to charge for premium service or excessive usage? The raving capitalist in me says "yes". I mean it's kinda bullshit that most of the burden on the internet is imposed by a relatively small minority of sites - movies streaming, communications, large merchants, etc. Shouldn't they have to pay more? Plus, it's the ISPs business, they should be able to do what they want with it. And if they offer shitty service then somebody else will rise to replace them. Except of course, it's not that easy. Since internet providers have long-long-long running contracts with cities preventing the installation of other high-speed cables, thus preventing competition. Seriously, how is that legal?

And then there is the issue of - what is to prevent providers from extorting people for better service? ISPs already limit the traffic speed on the internet. It could run much much faster, they just prevent it for a variety of reasons both legitimate and nefarious. So what is to prevent them from choking it even more unless users pay higher fees? Well other than a sense of decency and good customer service, neither of which seem to matter much when you are the only game in town. The only option is of course, regulation. *queue ominous music*

Thus we end up with the FCC's vote. All data treated the same, no blocking, no prioritization. Seems fairly decent. Kind of. So yeah. Except something keeps nagging me. I mean, being from 'Murica, I recognize that we control the entire world. Oddly enough though, people in other countries don't always seem to agree on that absolute fact. (Weird, I know.) So are ISPs in other countries bound by the FCC's rules? Obviously they should be, but what happens if they block, throttle, or prioritize content? Do we invade them? Send a strongly worded letter? Pull a China and put up a Great Firewall against them? How do these rulings matter on a worldwide stage? Which is annoying enough, but there is something else in these rules.

"Broadband providers may not block access to legal content." "Providers may not impair or degrade lawful Internet traffic." "Providers may not favor some lawful Internet traffic over other lawful traffic." Yeeaaahh. What exactly is the definition of "legal" and "lawful" again? How set in stone are those definitions? How does one even determine if specific content is illegal or unlawful? Is one instance of illegal content enough to justify illegal traffic? Or does it have to be repeated offenses? If Youtube users upload copyrighted material, does that make the traffic illegal? How does any of this shit work? How is it enforced? I know it's quibbling over details, but those things do tend to come back and bite us in the ass.




And finally, sucks that Leonard Nimoy died. Not surprising, cuz the guy looked... well "not good" in the last Trek movie. Like if you gave him a light push he would fall over dead. But still sucks.

So... yeah....



Welp it seems like blogger has decided to ban all porn. Which isn't really a huge surprise. I think we all kinda figured it would happen at some point. And that point is on March 23rd. Read below...
Dear Blogger User,

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content Policy that may affect your account.

In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we've made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won't experience any interruptions in service. You may also choose to create an archive of your content via Google Takeout (https://www.google.com/settings/takeout/custom/blogger).

For more information, please read here (https://support.google.com/blogger?p=policy_update).

Sincerely, The Blogger Team

Needless to say... fuck Google. Obviously they don't quite believe in as "free" an internet as they say. Which I'm sure is a huge surprise /sarcasm. But it's what happens when you place power over yourself into the hands of another. It will just about always come back to fuck you. Like with third-party card processors. Sigh.

Frankly, think there is gonna be a lot more of this in the future. Crackdowns on porn and the like. We'll have a new regime in power in the next few years, the moral guardians will be empowered, and there will be a lovely crusade of righteousness. Joy. And we'll have a new band of jackasses trying to enforce their cultural values as law, to replace our current group of jackasses. Yay. Can't wait. /more sarcasm

So what to do in the meantime? Reckon I'll copy the blog over to some other platform and host it off my site I guess. Sucks, but it is what it is. In the meantime, here's a pic to tide you over. Which may or may not be acceptable under the new terms. Who fucking knows these days.
