Will Carmine Live? Or Die? You Choose His Fate For Gears of War 3!

This isn’t ‘vote or die,’ people, this is actually serious business. So, we have the Carmine curse, right? There’s one Carmine brother left, and we get to decide his fate. “It’s not easy being a Carmine. In fact, it’s often fatal—just ask Anthony or Benjamin. Oh wait, you can’t. They’re dead. With the release of Gears of War 3 swiftly approaching, things aren’t looking good for the latest lamb to the slaughter, Clayton Carmine—unless you do something about it.”

Yes: we, the people, get to decide whether the last Carmine lives or dies in Gears 3.

All you have to do is buy an avatar shirt stating what your vote is. There’s a ‘save Carmine’ and a ‘Carmine must die’ shirt. The best part? All the proceeds go to the Child’s Play charity.

I’m pretty sure this is the first time a franchise has ever done anything like this. Needless to say I will be casting my vote…right now, I’m leaning toward Carmine dies. Why? Because when Gears 4 rolls out, they’ll have to get momma Carmine in there. Then again, look at this new Carmine:

That looks like one serious motherfucker….look at him! He’s breaking a Locust’s neck with his bare hands. That’s some Chuck Norris shit right there. I’d feel bad killing him. Plus, I always play as the blue power ranger online anyway…hmm…

“Keeping with the series’ tradition, Clayton Carmine will be introduced in the trilogy’s final chapter, and like Anthony and Ben, the newest rookie brother runs the high risk of meeting an early death. However, unlike in the previous games, the Xbox community will choose whether Carmine lives or dies by purchasing special Gears of War 3 avatar gear on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.”

Those that find themselves at Comic-Con this year will be able to cast their votes early–by purchasing an actual shirt.

So, what will you be voting?
