We had a great time last night at the New York Comic-Con Final Fantasy XIII-2 party, hosted by Square Enix in cooperation with Machinima and Destructoid. It was held at Tonic Bar in Times Square, where fans and show attendees packed it in for free drinks and a little post show relaxation. A lot of cool folks showed up to hang out, including Isamu Kamikokuryo, Final Fantasy XIII-2's art director. Champagne flowed, people laughed, we argued about which Final Fantasy was best [It's Final Fantasy VIII, by the way], and I met some great people -- a really nice night.
I've listed all the trivia questions we used last night here. See how well you would have done. Also be sure to check out our photos from the event.
