NYCC: Trivia from last night's Final Fantasy XIII-2 party

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.

There was Final Fantasy XIII trivia contest during the event. Fans were picked out of the crowd to answer some pretty tough questions, and the winners were presented with some good prizes. As a series fan, found that I was hanging in there with most of the first questions, but I was completely out of the running with some of the later ones. 

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.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.
