If your last name happens to be Carmine, you don’t stand much of a chance to make it to the end of a Gears Of War game. So far we’ve lost Ben and Anthony, and Clayton will be making an appearance in the 3rd game. However, there is a chance he will live. How you ask? Well, you’re going to have to spend Microsoft Space Bucks of course.
If you head to the Xbox Live Avatar Marketplace, you will find 2 shirts. ‘Save Carmine’, and ‘Carmine Must Die’. You buy, and your vote is cast. Immediately I thought, wow Epic games, what a cheap ploy to make some extra skrilla. BUT, all proceeds in the Carmine campaign go to the ‘Child’s Play Charity’. Read about the charity past the break, and go help out the damn kids you selfish assholes!
Child’s Play is a community-based games industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world. Through their network of more than 60 hospitals and through the generosity of their community of donors, Child’s Play raises millions of dollars each year to donate games, consoles and toys to sick children. The proceeds from the sales of the “Save Carmine” and “Carmine Must Die” avatar gear and limited edition NECA t-shirts will go to Child’s Play, so cast your vote, donate to charity, and get cool “Gears of War” gear!
