^this, but i remember it was 120 algs. also, if you want to learn how to solve it quickly then learn ortega

It is 120 if you don't count PBL. I think I was wrong when I said 128; I think it should be 126 or 125. (There are 42 algorithms for each of the three cases involving the face that was made. 42 times 3 = 126. Six of those are PBL algorithms. 126 - 6 = 120. It may be 125 counting PBL because of the solved case.)
I agree that Ortega can be used to quickly solve a 2x2x2. It uses a lot less algorithms that EG so it is easier to learn and use.
