Final Fantasy XIII-2

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

10:10 AM on 10.15.2011 // Dale North

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.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.

After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

A 2-d hovercraft platforming exploration game just came out today. Have fun collecting the coins! My record so far is 140.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?

I want Just Cause 2 and Metal Gear Solid V + Peace Walker to fornicate together so we can have a beautiful big open world to blow up and/or fulton. Then I want to build an infinitely-sized base of soldiers, each with their own personalities and stats.
FlanxLycanth avatarFlanxLycanth
When SFV drops next year we gotta get some DTOID noob battles on, practice with online lag with friends, be really bad casuals together. We can call it Kanye Night Fights. #Swerve on FNF (just kidding...maybe).

So someone messaged me on a Lightning fast, comment board that bow they're super depressed. And I worry for them now. Because a comment board is not something to get depressed over, just because someone disagrees with you if your an ass, people will be 2.

Guys, a sequel to Retro City Rampage: Shakedown Hawaii! Someone should really write about it. Lots of Dtoid staff were in the RCR after all.

Fuck racism man, shit ain't fair. Can't stand it and I shouldn't have to. Nobody should.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.
