For a month, Gears of War fans have been urged to pick sides over whether or not we’re going to have a Carmine survive the next Gears title with profits from the event being donated to Child’s Play. The votes have been tallied and the winner is… not going to be revealed. What teases.
But generous teases and all thanks to the gamers who have been buying “Save Carmine” and “Carmine Must Die” t-shirts both for their avatars and original, meat-based equivalents. All told, the Carmine campaign has raised $150,000 for Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play charity, which puts games in the hands of sick kids in hospitals all over the world. Damn, people. Pat yourselves on the back.
