We've covered the argument between Minecraft's parent company Mojang and Bethesda's parent company ZeniMax before. Basically, the fight is over the word "Scrolls," and it's the sort of thing only a legal department would really get involved in. Minecraft creator Notch has shown the suit the proper seriousness, by offering to settle the matter over a game of Quake, and today, we learned of what might be a veiled, jokey response to the matter by Betheseda.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold Skyrim's "Notched Pickaxe," a magical mining tool that grants a bonus to your smithing (AKA "crafting") abilities, as well as delivering shock damage to enemies.

Is this blocky digging tool's existence a veiled shout-out to the creator of Minecraft? Is this just a coincidence?  We may never get a straight answer, but you can apparently find the tool yourself in Skyrim's Throat of the World. I'll do that, too... as soon as I complete the 6,000 other quests in my quest book.
