Gears 3 Title Update 2 Now Live Read About the Details Here

The second title update for Gears of War 3 is now live!  TU2 was pushed out to the XBL community earlier this morning to provide a host of fixes, and/or changes to how this fabulous title plays.  Most of the fixes (if you can call them that) are focused on the multiplayer component of the game with a few of them making certain medals much easier to obtain.  In my opinion almost all of the medal requirements need tweaked, because I truly feel that they’re the reason why Gears 3 multiplayer isn’t as popular as it should be, but you can read more about that topic here.  For a full list of the Gears of War 3 TU 2 updates head on down past the break.  You’ve been liking title updates that make your life easier…
