Microsoft and Epic Games Let You Decide the Fate of Carmine in Gears of War 3 for Charity

Gears of War is by far one of the most popular video game titles on the planet. It's a success, in every sense of the word, for Microsoft and Epic Games, with the first two installments amassing millions of copies sold, and some of the most highly rated games to ever get released. And now with the third one about to drop onto shelves (relatively speaking, mind you -- it's not tomorrow, by any means), there's one question on everyone's mind: How's the rookie going to die?

RED EPIC bug squashed; Scarlet should launch by end of year

High-end camera manufacturer RED has announced that the "bug" holding up production of their new EPIC and Scarlet cameras has been identified and squashed, though the projects are now several months delayed.  Rather than rush production, however, RED founder Jim Jannard is insisting that the company won't release "a buggy camera with limited features"; instead they will continue with their testing program, adding EPIC-X sensors to RED ONE cameras as part of their Tattoo project, and kicking off EPIC production once the feedback is suitably positive.

One might imagine that this had come out of left field, but if you'll recall, we've actually seen this phone before. It broke cover thanks to a tipster, and while we had originally put the moniker Galaxy S Pro on it, obviously Sprint and Samsung had a different agenda. Courtesy of Sprint, we've got official word that the Samsung Epic 4G (have to love the new trend, right?) is indeed coming "soon," and it's packing quite a mean punch.
