Clayton Carmine Should Live

I was slightly at odds to the survival of Clayton Carmine until I saw this screenshot. 

Lets just take a quick zoom upon the right bicep, shall we? 
 


Dude has a sweet tattoo.

 Clayton must live. 
 
Also note how fucking stacked this dude is? Also he looks slightly more battle hardened that his two brothers. Would be a nice dynamic if he blamed Marcus for the death of his siblings, could lead to some interesting squad banter. Could easily be the most interesting character in Gears 3, considering the others are all known quantities. Ok, not that you play gears for the character depth, but you know what I mean. I don't want a squad of completely blank husks following me around, and the best way of implying the scale of the conflict you are in, rather than showing it to you, is to have other characters believably describe it. With the absence of Tai Kaliso, the is a spot open for the resident beast/psycopath. Clayton Carmine should fill that position nicely. 
  
Here's to hoping.

You should be banned for saying this.

I think it's a cop-out if dude lives.
 
CARMINES ARE SUPPOSED TO DIE

Posted by Teptom

He should die. 
 
But he should die as a hero at the end of the game.

Hey, even the creators of South Park stopped killing Kenny in every episode.

He has to take off his helmet to reveal that he is actually Cliffy B.

Posted by TheGreatGuero

Sweep, I totally agree. Good call.
 
Also, that Born 2 Saw tattoo is rad also.

i wanted him to live but after seeing what he looks like he should die no offence

Posted by Linkin10362

Well, it doesn't really matter what you think. It is all up to the contest, which in my opinion, will probably have the "Carmine Must Die" being the winning vote. It seems alot of people want to keep the Carmines dying. For me, I am kinda tore on Clay, I mean I want a Carmine to live, but he is too badass to be a Carmine. I always enjoyed the weak, rookie Carmines better. 
 
Also, maybe if Clay dies, D. Carmine will be in the game as well and live.

You know I was on the fence leaning towards him dying, but your right that is an awesome and pretty deep tattoo and he definitely looks bad ass so I think he should live.  But I don't think its going to happen, all the Carmines are going to die.  And if he does die then I hope it's an awesome heroic death, that would be cool.

Carmine must LIVE!

Three brothers killed fighting in a war...that's just not right. Anyway the guy looks like an animal but if he has to go...at least have him flip the fuck out just once and not get shot in the back of the head

Posted by CaptainFish

Wouldn't his tattoo actually show the faces of the brothers he loved so much, rather than just the helmets?

Anyway I'm a big fan of Epic's "we don't give a shit about this character so lets let the fans decide what happens to him" design for characters in games. Too bad I also don't care.

I still miss Lt. Kim, though.

Posted by CaptainObvious

He also has "Grub Killer" wrotten on the front of his armor.

I agree. He must survive!

Carmine LIVES 
 
 
(and dies as an hero in the end))

Posted by GunstarRed

You seem to have written Live when you were quite obviously meant to write Die. 
 
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a swift first five minute offing of Carmine.
Posted by Dylabaloo

How about he lives but then gets a serious illness from all the steroids? I kinda want it to be a draw to be honest.

Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan
@rjayb89:  Or he takes it off and it's Master Chief.
Posted by HandsomeDead

He should die just so then they can make the spin-off Saving Private Carmine and go after the fourth brother.

I do try to fight ignorance and stereotypes and racism with karate, like the Asians do.    
Edited by JackSukeru

I've only played Gears 2 so didn't know anything about there being a tradition of Carmines dying, I'm ok with him dying though if he saves the world in doing so, that would be cool. 
 
Edit: Fourth Carmine should be named Dennis.

Posted by FlamingHobo

Carmine must live!
Or die in a heroic manner.

Posted by GeneralTurkle

Sweet tattoo, but a carmine shall be slayed. or all hell breaks loose

Posted by natetodamax

That is an extraordinary tattoo. I just hope that EPIC doesn't reveal whether he lives or dies before release. I can totally see them going "Here are the results!" and spoiling it.

While it's true that the voice actor did die, he had already left South Park at that point. He got upset about how South Park made fun of Scientology (amazingly hypocritical) and left.
 
The episode where Chef is brainwashed by pedophiles (Super Adventure Club) and is brutally killed off at the end of the episode is a meta episode where the cast discusses Hayes (the voice actor) leaving.
Posted by The_Laughing_Man

If he dies. At least have him die being a hero. Maybe blocking the path for the guys to escape. Or taking out some super foe. 

Posted by BigBoss1911

He aint going to die cause hes fucking massive.

He quit before he died though. He thought the show was getting too offensive and racist or something.

this just goes to prove that tattoos make you cool

From what I understand, Isaac Hayes didn't like it when the show mocked Scientology, as he was a Scientologist at the time.  He left the show over that disagreement, forcing Chef to be written out of the show (but not before putting together a surreal episode in which all of Chef's dialogue was pieced together using his dialogue from earlier episodes).

I agree! Let Carmine live!

Posted by Oni

I can't decide if he should live or die. Kind of hard to make a decision without really knowing anything about the character. I guess I'd like to see him live.

Posted by Jadeskye

i wanna see him live, credits roll, happy ending then boom! Accidently shoots himself in the head while cleaning his lancer.

Posted by MannyMAR

I say they should handle it like the bell hop from Hot Tub Time Machine. Make Carmine have crazy close calls with the dudes from Delta being like, "Oh yeah, it's gonna happen NOW! WT... F!!! How is he still alive!"  Finally, after the credits have a tombstone with his name engraved showing he died of old age at the rip old age of 103. Hey if they did this, more or less everybody would get what they want.

I am totally with the OP. I have already bought my Save Carmine shirt for my avatar. He looks like a very, very cool character, and it always made me kind of sad whenever one of the Carmines died :(
 
P.S. I fucking love that they are still wearing their helmets on his tattoo, haha.

Only if he's the last Carmine brother.

Clayton must live.

Posted by Yummylee

God Dayum. Guy reminds me of Raven from the MGS series from that shot.

Posted by DaemonicGrim

I'm doing my part for the save carmine fund, bought the T-shirt. C'mon Clayton! 
 
Also interestingly, if you look at the marketplace you'll notice that the "save Carmine" T-Shirts are higher in the bestsellers than "Carmine must die" T-shirts... awesome sauce.

Posted by Mr_Skeleton

Thats not a true carmine, the Carmines are thin, fragile and have tendecy to die.

Posted by zudthespud

Clayton should get captured to set up a Gears Of War themed Saving Private Ryan knock off campaign. Then get killed.
