During last night's SOE Live keynote, president John Smedley gave the gossip-starved EverQuest fans one dangling carrot: an early taste of the game's musical score and some face time with legendary musical composer Jeremy So...

SOE Live: What fans want from EverQuest Next (video) photo
SOE Live: What fans want from EverQuest Next (video)
by Papa Niero

How do you follow up a game that has captivated so many people for 15 for completely different reasons? Its not a task Sony Online Entertainment has taken to lightly: EverQuest Next has been scrapped twice since 2008 and is about to finally see its day with the public at noon today (PDT). We'll have the live stream for you shortly so you can catch all the action.

As you can imagine, the fans  are literally going bat-shit, including those of us whom have seen it and have to hold the embargoed grenade for just a few more hours.

In the meantime, I found some smiling faces in the crowd and asked them to share their thoughts on video. What do you guys at home hope to see this afternoon?

Post a comment for a chance to win a Loot Crate
by Papa Niero

[Update: Contest over! Winners are Lee Stokes, dlconor16, ChillyBilly, Nek, and Drunkus. Check your PMs, people!]

During E3 I was lucky enough to hang out with Loot Crate, a service that sends you a gamer-and-geek themed assortment of candy, toys, stickers, clothing, and other goods for about $20 a month. They've been doing this for less than a year and already have 8,000+ members. Congratulations to founders Chris and Matthew, and may you see continued success.  

Oh yeah, and they gave us five of their awesome Loot Crates to give away. Want one?

How to Win a Loot Crate: Simply post a comment stating "Gimme a Loot Crate!" (or something like that, feel free to get creative) and you're entered to win.  We'll update this post this Friday with the random winners. Please note that Loot Crate only ships to North America, so International dudes will have to wait until they conquer the world. Good luck! To buy your own do this thing.  

Disclosure: Destructoid is not financially compensated in any way for this referral, I just dig it.

Video: Is Nintendo's holiday lineup strong enough?
by Papa Niero

Yesterday we spent some hands-on time with Nintendo's holiday lineup for 2013, and talked about their strong core gamer titles for 2014. We saw some very cute and fun games that my family will surely enjoy, and pondered how the hell a salesperson would explain Pikmin 3 to the world.

With the PS4 and Xbox One making a huge splash this holiday season it seemed to us that Nintendo was really playing it safe, or was holding something back to announce last minute this Christmas. Nintendo has said it has no plans for a price cut, so could it be a crazy bundle? Something else? Check out Hamza's analysis and let us know what you think in the comments below.

What would you do if you were Microsoft today? photo
What would you do if you were Microsoft today?
by Papa Niero

There is little debate over who "won" E3 this year: In our internal poll following the conference most of our readers chose the PlayStation 4 as the superior contender.

Sony put on a quite a strong show, came $100 under Microsoft's next-gen offering, and reassured gamers that no online or DRM restrictions or used game policies would impede them from enjoying their console. Still, to say that Microsoft has lost the battle would be underestimating one of the most capable companies around. The Xbox One launch is still several months away and there is time for the Microsoft PR machine to get their act together.

Now, imagine if you were in that hot seat tonight in Redmond.  You've got a gazillion dollars to patch that hole in the wall. How would you "fix" this?
