Guild Wars 2 likes its Skyrim memes

Much like Portal’s ‘Cake Joke’, which spawned a thousand memes and references from other developers in their games, Skyrim’s (in)famous ‘arrow to the knee joke’ is getting a very similar treatment.

While the Internet is slowing retiring its boots of the repetitive meme, video game developers are only catching up. For example, Guild Wars 2′s ‘Crippling Shot’, an unlock that shatters the dream of your foes of becoming adventurer “with a single arrow to the knee.” It does 15 damage and causes bleeding over time for 6 seconds.

Now that’s a class I would want to play.

Thanks, Reddit.

Looks to be Activision’s next Call of Duty installment is indeed another Black Ops title. This time, adding to a barrage of other leaks, a fan has taken a picture of a Target pre-order card and e-mailed it to IGN.

While the card essentially confirms that Black Ops 2 is the new entry in the unstoppable Activision juggernaut, it does have a big fat November 13 release date listing plastered in the middle – a launch date that is very typical to a Call of Duty title.

Whatever it maybe, Activision will formally reveal the next Call of Duty on Tuesday, May 1.
