Gears of War 3: Carmine shows up

Gears of War 3: Carmine shows up

The third brother of the Carmine family and certainly the more badass shows up in these new screens of Gears of War 3. He's named Clayton, and starting July 29 fans will be able to vote for his fate by purchasing an avatar t-shirt, one reads “Save Carmine” and the other reads “Carmine Must Die”. All the proceeds will go to the Child’s Play Charity.

Press release:


Fans to Decide the Fate of Carmine in “Gears of War 3”

Place your vote for the fate of the newest Carmine brother through the purchase of avatar gear on Xbox LIVE Marketplace with benefits going to charity


LONDON – 21 July 2010 - The fate of Carmine lies in your hands! For the first time in franchise history, Epic Games and Microsoft are giving fans the chance to decide the fate of a character in “Gears of War 3.” By purchasing avatar gear on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, fans and gaming communities around the globe will decide the destiny of the newest Carmine brother set to appear in “Gears of War 3,” with all the proceeds going to the Child’s Play Charity.

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. Starting July 29 two new avatar t-shirts will be available on the Avatar Marketplace on Xbox LIVE – one shirt reads “Save Carmine” and the other reads “Carmine Must Die.” By purchasing the “Save Carmine” shirt, you’re casting your vote to let Carmine live in “Gears of War 3.” Conversely, purchasing the “Carmine Must Die” shirt means you want to see Clayton follow in the fate of his brothers.

He looks more badass than before, it would be nice to see what would happen with the story if he lived.

The girl looks soooo terrible in that last picture haha

Carmen must live. Plus the Black and red t-shirt looks better than the red and black.
Those t-shirts better be for free.

This looks incredible by the way. Is this the bad-ass brother? Nice, although it looks like he's gonna lose an arm in pic 4, lol...

best looking game so far

Are those screens real and untouched? That's amazing. But the amount of AA makes me doubt...

Unreal Engine starts showing its age......not.....yet.

Well at least Epic knows how to really unleash its potential.


P.S. Of Course the screens are doctored, everything nowadays is, but I expect the textures, the polycount and the lighting in the final built to be as good as one the screens. Jaggies will be covered with blur anyways...

I don't know, have you watched the gameplay vids? Looked really smooth. Gears 2 had nice AA as well...

16XAA? On a console?

if only it looked this good on the 360 :(
Commented on 2010-07-21 18:30:41
It doesn't have to be 16AA, I'm sure they have other means, much like the MLAA on the PS3...
Commented on 2010-07-21 18:31:36
The game looks AMAZING!!! Save Carmine, what the hell...

MLAA is nowhere near what 16xAA is, not even 4xAA to that where PS3 seems incapable to acheive. doesn't work well in half the games, not that anyone of them uses it.

Yes, it did, but surely no 4xAA. These screens look to have at least 8 or 16xAA. There isn't a jaggy to be seen.

Amazing stuff, Sorry Carmine you gotta go!!!

I have to agree, but I still think it will be plenty smooth...

Pulling a Jason Todd. Nice.

That woman lifting the locust up in the last shot is ridiculous. But then again, the whole franchise is ridiculous. Seems a bit sexist that the women aren't ridiculously muscly as well, even if it is unattractive. I digress...

Pfff! It's for charity, of course they're not free.

For those of you who're obviously confused. Carmine is the last name of (I believe) 4 brothers. So far 2 have died in the previous game. If this one dies as well we might have an Saving Private Carmine story for the fourth Gears ;)

bullshots to the highest degree. but he looks very cool. hopefully he's a proper character this time around and not just the kenny (south park) of the gears world
