Gears 3: The fate of Carmine rests in your hands

Wednesday, 21st July 2010 15:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Epic and Microsoft are giving fans the chance to decide Clayton Carmine’s  fate in Gears of War 3, and it’s all for charity.

Personally, we’re tired of the Carmines dying. Their poor mother.

Starting, July 29 two new avatar t-shirts will be available on the Avatar Marketplace on Xbox Live, each one determining the character’s fate: one reads “Save Carmine”, and the other reads “Carmine Must Die.”

By purchasing the “Save” shirt, you’re casting your vote to let Carmine live in Gears 3. Conversely, by purchasing the “Die” shirt, you want to see Clayton follow the fate of his brothers Anthony and Ben.

Proceeds from the Avatar shirts go directly to Child’s Play.

Gears 3 will release on April 5, 2011.

New screens, including ones of Carmine, are below.

    Are we sure Clayton’s a Carmine? He looks a bit chunkier than we’ve come to expect of this family. Maybe Cole’s mum slept around some.

    @1 He does look a lot more buff. Maybe this one has a chance. I don’t see it happening though. Gears fans are a blood-thirsty lot.

    I think it’s time a Carmine caught a break, poor lad.

    When can I buy the “Marcus and Dom should totally bone” T-shirt?

    Carmine should at one point of the game save Anya from drowning, then take out his helmet to reveal a more handsome, younger version of Marcus, And start kicking ass and proposing marriage in the final battle… oh wait.

    He should live 110%. Then they should show him retiring from the war, building a farm, fighting bear’s, getting his woman and making her cook steak. Because nothing says MAN more than the old Steak ‘n’ Sex.

    I think he should be gang raped by the Lambent locusts.

    If he lives or dies is irrelevant, as long as he is a bad ass, and if he does buy the farm then it must be in a heroic way.

    Great way to make a vote, everyone wins!

    @16 I was thinking the same exact thing.
    Either the Grubs are super light weight, the humans on Sera have super strength, or The armor the cogs wear also act as a muscle enhancer.
