Return to Monkey Island: How to find all LeChuck’s secrets

Welp, Guybrush has once again found himself in a rather tough spot. Thankfully, this time, anyway, he's able to align himself with a new group of pirates to help him get his adventure back on track after nearly getting his hands on what he thought was the secret of Monkey Island. This crew actually has the real map of the secret's location, but there's a problem: it's magically sealed. If you can help them out, they will take you to its location.

What You Need

  • All seven skulls on Monkey Island

What they need you to do, though, is discover not one but three of LeChuck's secrets to perform a magic spell to unseal the map. This will require you to not only find a way back onto LeShip, but also discover LeChuck's favorite food, his catchphrase, and his theme song. This is quite a process, so don't feel bad if you need some help. Here's how to find all of LeChuck's secrets in Return to Monkey Island.

How to get back on LeShip

It should be obvious by now, but you won't exactly be welcome back on LeShip, meaning you're going to have to sneak back aboard to uncover the three secrets. Here's how to get Guybrush back on board.

Step 1: Talk to your new pirate friends at the giant monkey head on the east side of Monkey Island.

Step 2: After exhausting all their dialogue, go to the volcano beach on the west side of the island.

Step 3: Walk into the ocean.

Step 4: Go past the anchor to grab a seventh skull before climbing the anchor.

Step 5: Move all the way to the left.

Step 6: Climb down the rudder to where Gullet is.

Step 7: Speak to Gullet and ask him about his notebook.

Step 8: Keep speaking to him about it until you can offer to help him write a poem.

Step 9: Ask to see his poems first, but he'll refuse.

Step 10: Give Gullet the business card from the Museum Curator.

Step 11: Gullet will give you a book of poems.

Step 12: Go all the way back to the giant monkey head.

Step 13: Give the book of poems to the pirates, who will use it to disguise you as Gullet.

Step 14: Backtrack to LeShip, this time climb up over the railing instead of down to Gullet.

How to find LeChuck's favorite food

With your disguise, you're free to roam about LeShip once again. First up, let's find out what LeChuck likes to dine on most.

Step 1: Go to the galley and talk to Putra.

Step 2: She will tell you LeChuck's favorite food is tentacles with daisy sauce, but they're all out of tentacles.

Step 3: Head all the way back to the beach near the volcano.

Step 4: On the right end of the screen is a dead squid.

Step 5: Use your knife on the squid to get a tentacle.

Step 6: Bring the tentacle to Putra so she can cook it for you.

How to find LeChuck's catchprase

We've got the meal all packed up, so now it's time to learn this pirate's catchphrase.

Step 1: Go inside LeChuck's cabin (he's not inside).

Step 2: Pick up the book on the shelves to the right of his chair.

Step 3: Read the entry from April 10.

Step 4: This will tell you to read the entry from February 17 in his diary.

Step 5: Read this page to get the catchphrase.

How to find LeChuck's theme song

Finally, what pirate doesn't have a catchy theme song?

Step 1: Ring the ship's bell once to call the crew for a vote.

Step 2: When Flair and the others gather, sneak past to where she was and grab the sheet music.

With all the secrets collected, head back to the giant monkey head and talk to the pirates. You'll need to use all those skulls we collected to play the theme song, say the catchphrase at the ritual table, and then eat the tentacles. With all that done, the map will tell you the true location of the secret of Monkey Island.

How to find and catch all Legendaries in Palworld
A giant pal uses a minigun in Palworld.

What monster-collection game would be complete without some Legendary versions to track down and add to your team? Palworld launched with a very respectable roster of Pals across its nine types, but unfortunately, it only has four Legendaries to start. However, even if you have friends along to help you search, this is a massive open world with a ton of ground to cover. If you think your team is up to the challenge and want to take on some of the toughest Pals in the game, here is where you can find all of the Legendaries currently in the game.
All Legendary locations
There are currently four Legendary Pals in Palworld: Jetragon, Frostallion, Necromus, and Paladius. Aside from their raw power, Legendaries in Palworld also have exclusive Legend-level passive skills that give them +20% in Attack and Defense and plus +15% in Movement Speed.

Jetragon is a Dragon-type Pal you can ride as a flying mount that resides in the western region of the map near the volcanoes. You can find it by going north from the Beach of Everlasting Summer fast travel point at coordinates -792, -319.

How to get all Athra Surges in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown
Sargon leaps in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.

Going back to its 2D roots, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown spices up the formula in regard to design and gameplay to fit the Metroidvania mold. Traversal and navigation are about what you would expect, including the ability to uncover the map by finding a hidden NPC, but combat is a lot more flexible than you might think. In addition to your normal attacks, Athra Surges serve as your most powerful tools to unleash in a pinch. Most come naturally throughout the game, but half are optional and require some extra exploration to unlock. If you want to make the most of your Athra gauge and craft the perfect build in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, here's how to get them all.
How to get all Athra Surges
There are 10 total Athra Surgest to collect in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, however, only five of them are given to you through natural progression. The remaining five you will need to hunt down and collect by beating the Alternate Sargon in a fight. He will appear at specific areas on the map, and if you can best him, you will be rewarded with a new Athra Surge. The five you get through normal progression are:

Verethranga's Smite: a dashing attack that deals multiple hits.
Bahman's Breath: spawns an HP restoring area of effect.
Arash's Ray: shoots a beam that can pierce enemies
Bahamut's Rage: creates a massive tornado around Sargon that throws any enemy nearby for damage.
Rashnu's Judgment: puts you in a counter-stance that unleashes a powerful attack on any enemy that hits you while active.

All stash locations in Alan Wake 2 and how to open them
Alan drenched in green light in Alan Wake 2.

FBI agent Saga Anderson and her partner, Alex Casey, are called into Bright Falls to investigate a murder committed by a strange group calling themselves the Cult of the Trees. These dangerous cultists are your main enemy in Alan Wake 2, and they put up quite a fight despite mostly using basic tools as weapons. They seem mindless and primitive, but the fact that they have a series of Cultist Stashes hidden all around the world suggests otherwise. These treasure troves are very well hidden, and they're protected with a small puzzle to try and prevent those who may stumble upon one from grabbing all the goodies inside. You'll find yourself short on supplies essentially all the time in Alan Wake 2, so scooping up some extra ammo and batteries is always welcome. Here is where you can find all the Cultist Stashes in Alan Wake 2 and how to open them.
All Cultist Stash locations
There are a total of 21 Cultist Stashes to find and unlock in Alan Wake 2. Each zone has its own set to find, and they all have different puzzles you need to solve to open them. None are missable, but some can't be obtained until you make story progress or get specific tools.
Bright Falls Cult Stashes

The first Cult Stash you can find comes as soon as you reach the town of Bright Falls for the first time. Instead of going straight to your destination down the block, turn around and head toward the dead end. Behind the truck will be a big locked box. To open this one, all you need to do is play a little game of Simon Says. The keypad will flash three buttons in a sequence that you simply need to repeat to open the box and grab the loot.
