bud389;4745205So i was playin gears of war 2 right, and i get to the part where i run into Carmine! I was like "YES! Carmines back!" but then later in the story, he dies by getting eatin by a giant worm then consumed by the parasites inside of it! I was like :uhoh: "CARMINE, NOOOOO!" Anybody else hate it when carmine died? i would've much preferred it if Cole or Baird died.

What? Cole die? Cole is the best, it wouldn't be GoW if it didn't have the Cole Train

But funny story, I have overly protective parents, so I had to play with the filters on, and when carmine dies.... it doesn't show ANYTHING, it shows his armor perfectly intact, I was like "WTF?!?!?! GET UP YOU PANSY"

Then I played it without the filters.... I felt like a dick...:(

When the first Carmine died in Gears of War 1, I didn't really care, he was just some unlucky fellow. But in Gears of War 2 they make you care for the guy, have him gain some combat experience with you, get you used to having him along on mission and than they tear him away. They are cruel ones at Epic. I just know one of the other Carmine brother is bound to show up and die in Gears of War 3 which makes it that much worse. Perhaps the fourth brother will live? Yet with Epic however I imagine the Gears will have just won the war and on the way back to their base or whatever, when Carmine #4 will fall out of the chopper into the rotor blades of another chopper.

I was pretty sad that Carmine died, I would have much prefered Baird over him. Barid's just an asshole all the time, but Carmine's pretty cool.

I really liked Baird. He's just determined to survive the war no matter what - and he's a very good soldier and leader.

Been promoted on various occasions but then deomoted again due to various disagreements with and lack of respect for his superiors. He's pretty much an expert on the locust, or at least as close to one the gears will get out on the field.

His fundamental disagreement with Fenix is a very good albeit subtle dialogue theme throughout. The first time they get to properly talk after the retreat where Kim dies, Marcus is promoted to Sgt. by Col. Hoffman, to which Baird says "Oh, that's fine. Don't promote the smart guy, promote the Asshole!".

Don't know if you noticed, but Fenix always made sure to never be with only Baird. Whenever the team splite up, Marcus always teams himself with Cole or Dom. Not once do Marcus and Damon pair up.

However, it's clear that they grow close. In the end when fighting the Lambent Brumak, one of the Ravens goes down, and Fenix yells "BAIRD!", to which he replies over the radio "It's ok, I'm still here Marcus". Heartwarming suff.

So yeah, here endeth the reasons I like Baird.

Back ontopic; I feel that the death of both Carmine brothers is an attempt by epic to show how death is indiscriminant in war, and even the most innocent have just as much chance of death as anybody else.
