Minecraft reference sneaks into Skyrim

Bethesda/Zenimax's legal team may be on the warpath, but the developers at Bethesda Soft bear no ill will toward Mojang Games, it would seem. Despite the Minecraft developer meeting Bethesda at court, a cute little reference to the game has been found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Pictured is the "Notched Pickaxe," which bears some resemblance to Minecraft's all-important stone-stabber. Notch, as many of you know, is the name that Minecraft's creator uses. If you want the implement for yourself, it's laying around at the Throat of the World, which happens to be Skyrim's largest central mountain. 

Bethesda and Mojang are involved in a legal dispute over Notch's desire to name his next game Scrolls. This is said to infringe on The Elder Scrolls' name. Many people have opinions on this situation, though few actually understand what they're talking about.
