As it stands right now, the Carmine that will appear in Epic's Gears of War 3 -- Clayton Carmine -- will live. This based on sales of real t-shirts and Xbox Live Avatar t-shirts… gamers want Carmine to survive the next Gears outing.
Do you want him dead? It's not too late -- you can still buy actual "Save Carmine" or "Carmine Must Die" shirts online, if you haven't already. Not interested in displaying your allegiance on your chest? The Avatar items are still available on the Xbox Live Marketplace, too. Proceeds go towards the Child's Play charity, so in saving (or destroying) a life, you're helping out a good cause.
Are you one of the folks pulling for Carmine's survival? It would be a first for the Gears series, which has already slaughtered two of the Carmine clan, Anthony and Benjamin, in previous titles. My thinking is "why stop now?" But I'm a bit of a sick bastard. Follow the link below to the official Gears site for details on where you can get the goods.
