Oh oops. Why did I think they were on LOTLD. I clearly had a moment. :oops2:

Note to self, Lavomatrix are different things than Hoodstormers. :fou:

Yep, this is correct.

Oh yes they are! I really like the Lavomatrix music, by the way. Do Hoodstormers have a tune of their own? I think they do, but I am not sure it plays during every Hoodstormer encounter.

Question 9: In Rayman Origins, characters speak two distinct "gibberish" languages based on English. What are these, and who speaks each one?
(Note: if you don't know the language names, and don't want to look it up, I will accept an explanation of the language's fundamental rule instead)

Hmm... Too obscure? ;)

What is our policy on running questions in parallel (other than Bonus questions)? Is it OK to post a new one, but keep this one open in case someone answers it later? Or should I just skip if there are no answers after a while?

Isn't there the language where you add "-bu-" to every syllable, spoken by Polokus, and Pig Latin spoken by everyone else?

Right on! The -bu- (or -ub-) language is known as "Ubbi Dubbi".

Let's try another Origins question, but this one should be easier.

Question 10: In Rayman Origins levels that have 3 Electoons on their Medallion - what are the Electoons given for?

All three are just for your Lum count as far as I can remember.

You break the cage at the end of the level for the first one, and then the other two are earned from your Lum count, right??

I will take this answer, as it is almost completely accurate. :) The exception is that the boss levels do not generally have a cage to break at the end; instead you get the first electoon just for completing the level.

Heavy Metal Fist, Lockjaw, Shock Rocket, Throttle Copter.

Only the poor Vortex gets no love (but I think one of our scorers hacked it in and published a video recently, showing why it wouldn't work. :P

Perfect answer! And now for the follow-up:

Question 12: In Rayman 3, what is special about the Shock Rockets in the last Reflux battle, compared to everywhere else in the game?

They automatically lock on to the target, don’t they? (Which I think was the scepter on Reflux’s back)

Indeed they do! It always felt to me like the developers decided to give the player a break. Like the last thing I want to worry about, having climbed all the way up there, is how to navigate this stupid missile to hit a target on the back side of the monster in front of me. :mrgreen:

I can think of Child, Forest, Sweets, Organic Cave and Dark, so that's five in total.

You got the bonus question down perfectly! I was a bit surprised during my first playthrough that there were no 'early' boss encounters in the Caves of Skops, like there were in every preceding world.

I have a hunch ( :hap: ) it's six, but I'm probably wrong here.
