Gears 3 Carmine campaign gains $150k for Child’s Play

Monday, 6th September 2010 10:14 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Epic’s raised $150,000 for Penny Arcade charity Child’s Play following it’s save or die Carmine campaign for Gears of War 3.

Gamers were allowed to buy virtual and real-life T-shirts to decide the fate of the final Carmine brother, Clayton, with proceeds going to the charity.

The campaign has been a overwhelming success, it seems.

As for if Carmine lives or not, you’ll have to play the game next April to find out.

Catch a video clip of Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski and Rod Fergusson announcing the news below.

Thanks, Beefjack.

    Just for this game i will probably buy Xbox 360 slim this year or i will buy 470 GTX. Need to choose still :(
    This is actually the only one game that i’m looking for from the Xbox library (maybe Crytek new game if it will be good).
    If this and Crytek action adventure game could come to PC i could give a big F… about that junk.

    I’m in love with Epic Games so far. Always was. My childhood. Gears 2-3 is this generation Unreal Tournament.

    PS: Still mad about the fact that they released the worst version of Gears Of War franchise on the PC and forgot to release a second game to the PC, not to mention about third. :( ehhh…

    @2 If i will buy Xbox 360 and will pay for the gold i will feel myself that i’m a complete retard.

    that gold membership is just an absolute Rip Off when i don’t need Twitter, Facebook and all other services. I’m not even going to search for them.

    A wise and altruistic move.

    Hopefully Black has the lead.

    Couldn’t give a rat’s ass about Erzatwat opinions till he takes that PieceofShit3 shoddy hardware crap from his rear.

    Epic FTW, Kill Carmine.
