Dave the Diver: how to find the Microphone

Sunken treasure comes in all shapes and sizes in Dave the Diver. While you probably would never guess that a quest would have you diving in search of a Microphone of all things, that's exactly what you need to do in order to complete the "Sea People Language Translator" main quest. There are technically three items required to make the Translator, with the other two being the Sea People Stone Tablet and an Amethyst. Even though you get an idea of where to find them all, the Microphone is rather tricky to track down. Rather than waste all your air and time combing the depths of the sea, we'll map out exactly where you can find the Microphone in Dave the Diver.

Where to find the Microphone

The Microphone will be in a familiar location from an earlier quest in Dave the Diver. If you need a refresher, here's where to search.

Step 1: Dive straight down in the Blue Hole.

Step 2: Continue straight down into the first cavern to around 100 to 120 meters.

Step 3: To the east (or right), you will find the old shipwreck of the yellow ship. This is the same shipwreck where you needed to go in order to fight the first boss; the Giant Squid. While the boss is still gone, there are a number of dangerous sea creatures around to be aware of.

Step 4: Get through the ship and into the cavern below and collect the Microphone, which will be marked with a yellow exclamation point.

With this, and the other two pieces needed to make the Translator, you can return to Dr. Bacon to complete the quest.

How to unlock Havik in Mortal Kombat 1
Havik ripping his own arm off.

Aside from the infamous Fatalities, one of the defining features of the Mortal Kombat series has been its unlockables. Each game has had tons of secrets to discover and unlock. Originally, these were found through very cryptic means, but have evolved to be tied more to progression and accomplishing specific tasks within the game. The most appealing thing to unlock has always been new characters, and Mortal Kombat 1 keeps one member of the roster tucked away for you to earn. If you want to get your hands on Havik, we'll spill the beans.

Asus ROG Ally vs. Steam Deck: here’s how they compare
Asus ROG Ally and Steam Deck sitting next to each other.

It's been a few months since I originally wrote my Asus ROG Ally Z1 Extreme review, and the device has changed drastically in that time. It's still a compelling device that easily beats the Steam Deck in raw performance, but a slew of strange updates has left the ROG Ally in a strange spot compared to the Steam Deck.

For those who don't have a handheld gaming PC, the ROG Ally still wins over the Steam Deck. However, as you can read in our Steam Deck review, Valve's handheld still continues to be a force in the evolving world of gaming handhelds despite its aging hardware.
It's all a matter of price

Where to find Benryn and Mirileth’s dowry in Baldur’s Gate 3
A man trapped under a wooden beam in a burning house.

Fetch quests are quite played out in RPGs, but Baldur's Gate 3 manages to put a unique spin on the tired old formula in the "Rescue the Trapped Man" quest. Starting the quest is easy enough, but the goal of finding the lost dowry itself can feel as daunting as finding a needle in a haystack. There are several ways you can go about getting clues to help you find the missing valuables, however, not all of them will be obvious or available to your character depending on their class and abilities. To finally put this mystery to bed and recover the lost treasure for a troubled man -- or keep it for yourself -- here's where to find Mirileth's Dowry in Baldur's Gate 3.
How to find Benryn and Mirileth's dowry

This quest begins by finding the man named Benryn in Waukeen's Rest, which is notably ablaze when you arrive. He is inside the house closest to the fast travel point, and trapped under a large wooden log. Pass either an Intelligence or Strength check to lead him out of the fire and save his life. Even though you saved him, Benryn will have another favor to ask you, which is to locate his wife, Mirileth. The two had an argument about the dowry and he doesn't know where it is. Unfortunately, finding Mirileth won't help much as she has passed away, so you now have to find the dowry yourself.
