Web Tricks, Flash Videos, Games, etc...

Post by Chocola » Sat Mar 07, 2009 5:38 pm

Yup, post your favorite entertaining anything from the web here!

Akinator, the Web Genius is just a fun "game" to play. It's a game where I often try to lose, which means Akinator guesses my character correctly. It works quite well with popular anime characters, famous historical figures, or your mom. Try it if you can!



Lol this is hilarious. I wonder why it was banned? :p



I've seen many "funny" commercial but this one still tops my list. See if you can do better!

Great topic you made.

Wow... that game is amazing... it guessed right all five characters in the top of my ISML even when it seemed like the question weren't enough to do so. Thanks a lot for sharing it.


Loved the commercials. Here is one I like:




One of the best article of TV Tropes IMO is the "Better Than It Sounds" article. I will quote a part in the beginning that explains it well:

"So you love a series. You own all the volumes, have various merchandise, can quote characters off the top of your head, and know every plot twist by heart.

However, one day someone asks the dreaded question "What's this about?" And suddenly it hits you — trying to sum it up in only a few sentences makes it sound really really ridiculous, and though the show itself may take itself entirely seriously, suddenly all the random parts, nonsensical aspects and just plain weirdness are laid bare before you.

But, really it's Better Than It Sounds once you actually see it in action."

The link is here. Note that it has various subscetions (anime, games, film, literature, etc).

Some examples:

Hayate no Gotoku:

A young bum works for a bitchy but cute midget. He's very good at his job.
Nanoha:

Naoha A's
SpoilerShow
Little girls battle German terrorist group commanded by an oblivious, lovable cripple. Hats are briefly knocked from heads, leading to berserker rage.
Nanoha StrikerS

A special forces instructor adopts a female clone of Jesus, and then is forced to shoot her.
Haruhi:

Love tetrahedron develops amidst various Twilight Zone-esque Negative Space Wedgies. Existence hangs on the outcome.
Negima:

Lol, I remember that commercial too. It's another great one. I loved the MSLN S1 "spoiler" too. :P

Also, if you play Akinator, then try to pick popular characters or else you might get weird results. I remember once I picked Chise and there was this question: Is your character still alive at the end of the series? It turns out that he didn't guess Chise correctly because of that question. Don't worry; this isn't a spoiler because apparently SaiKano is one of my favorite anime and I got that question wrong.

PS: If he can't guess it after 20 questions, then click on More Questions and now there's like a 95% chance that he will get it unless you mess up somehow. :D

Some question are really difficult to answer... Tried to vote following a pattern (like yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, don't know, redo) to see what he would guess... got some interesting answers... but the best guess was: "No one"

Will try that later if I choose a very difficult character.

lol, wth, it guessed Feito and Yami with ease, but I couldn't get it to guess Nanoha regardless what I tried. That's rage inducing. :x

Edit: After the 5th try using the 'additional questions' tab, it finally guessed right. I think "Does your characters name appear in the title of a anime?" kind of gave it away, lol.

Akinator is awesome, I started with easy characters and then with harder and more obscure ones...
Sebastian Michaelis, Nagisa Furukawa, Misaka Mikoto, Emma were easily guessed, while he couldn't get Nao Kanzaki, PenPen (it's NOT Hamtaro!), George Koizumi...
Now I can't stop playing it.

Akinator is pretty impressive. I'd tried the first time with Nagisa, and got saw right through. The next was Horo, and although I thought the questions were ambiguous (besides animal ears), it still guessed right. As a final challenge however, I tried Haruki Suzumiya (seitenkan) on the program and after 7 x 7 = 49 questions, it answered with...

Pedobear.

Doesn't make it any less awesome though :3

EDIT:
Bested: Seto San, Naoki Irie, Kukuri (Mahoujin Guru Guru), Hanamichi Sakuragi...
Lost to: Douglas Adams [ guessed Vytautas Kernagis ], ME-tan [ guessed Sakura (Ukagaka) ], Erin (Kemono no Souja Erin) [ guessed San (Princess Mononoke) ]...

I managed to get Haruki on the second set of questions... :P

And he gets Kyonko in less than 20!

To wit:

Q1: Is your character a female? Y
Q2: Is you character a singer? N
Q3: Does your character have a brother or sister? Y <--this question narrows it down the fastest
Q4: Does your character really exist? N
Q5: Does your character go to school? Y
Q6: Does your character have magical powers? N
Q7: Does your character have a sister? N
Q8: Is your character from an anime (Japanese animation)? Probably, partially
Q9: Does your character have long hair? Y <--we're in the home stretch!
Q10: Does your character have a older brother? N
Q11: Is your character black-haired? Y
Q12: Is your character a member of a club? Y
Q13: Does your character come from the Internet? Y <--The final piece of the puzzle!

...and he crashes because of too many people playing! :lol:

EDIT: Thank you, KS for introducing me to a time waster that's on the same level as TVTropes! :cooltongue: :D

That's an interesting part! When I tried a new game his "question" was:
"Warning: msg_send() expects parameter 1 to be resource, integer given in /var/www/akinator/aki_en/lib/biblio_devin.php on line 31
Je suis désolé."

Reloaded and it was the same. Tried to choose a random answer and his "question" became "I am lost? Would you mind starting a new game?". Tried a new game and got "I am sorry. There are way too many people playing. Please, try again in a few minutes"... even when it's not working it is funny!

Akinator is pure fun \o/

I tried with a bunch of anime/cartoon characters (from Lina Inverse to Peter Griffin :D) and most of them were correctly guessed. Impressive.

That video was very amusing! XP

Now I found a funny video. A parody to the trailer of a movie called "The Hot Chick"... using Toradora scenes! Taiga's "Can I see it?" ftw. XD
