We’ve all seen it during load screens, GearBox’s hugely irresponsible and wrong four chuggas per choochoo.
And if you’re like me, you’ve gotten angrier and angrier about this patently false information continuing to infect BL3.
We all know, and it’s very easy to find, that there are always 8, 10, or 12 chuugas per choochoo, depending on the locomotive type. A Mallet with it’s 10 massive driver wheels, for example, is 12 chuggas per choochoo, while even the smallest engine like a switcher Pug use 8 chuggas.
This obvious mistake really destroys the BL3 experience.
ChooChoos are accents, exciting additions. Dropping one every 4 chuggas completely cheapens the value of a choochoo, and trivializes the rest of the game. QA should have caught this.
Also, this is another clear indication that Gearbox is not listening to users. In this case I mean literally listening, had they brought in as few as 10 users and had them play with a model locomotive they would have heard in the first minute that users default to 8 or more chuggas.
Even further, it can be argued that this load screen information should not even be in the game!!!. Chuggas and choochoos are of course associated with steam engines, diesels don’t make them. And of course as we all know BL3 is not available on Steam!!!1!!1!!
This is hugely frustrating. They’ve had more than a month to fix this, this could have been addressed in the first hot fix, but here we are, still subjected to this ridiculous information.
This makes me so angry that I’m not going to launch BL3 again until it’s addressed. Gearbox, are you listening at all???
