Stray Features A Niche Skyrim Easter Egg

Stray has been out for one whole day, and already, it has taken the internet by storm. Thank goodness for that.

If you've been wondering why your Twitter feed is nothing but cats being perplexed by TV screens, that's because Annapurna Interactive's new indie title is this month's absolute banger for the gaming industry, bringing an adorable stray tabby cat into a cyberpunk future on the adventure of a lifetime. It also has a dedicated meow button, in case you needed any more reassurance that the game is truly something to fall in love with.

And no less than 24 hours after it launched, players have been digging up the game's many Easter eggs - and one makes reference to the fantasy giant Skyrim.

Stray Boasts A Cute Skyrim Easter Egg

Amongst references peppered through the collapsing world of Stray, one pays homage to Bethesda's masterpiece The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Sojiro's culinary past.

As discovered by YouTuber xGarbett, speaking to your robot pal will reveal that a very specific injury kept them from pursuing their dreams of running their own bar.

When approaching one of the hole-in-the-wall bars in Stray, talking to Sojiro will prompt him to tell you about his past - "I used to own a bar. It was the coziest place around here. Until I took a screwdriver in the knee, and it's closed now."

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last decade, you'll recognise this as a play on the "took an arrow in the knee" meme that has been circulating since it was first uttered by a Stormcloak guard.

But a lot of people have misconstrued the meaning of the gag.

"Taking An Arrow In The Knee" Doesn't Mean What You Think It Means

A lot of people have assumed that Skyrim's leading meme is entirely literal, and that the guard speaking to the player suffered an injury that kept them from enjoying the adventuring life that the Dragonborn is enjoying - but that may not be the case.

To take an arrow in the knee is a Nordic saying that actually means to get married - so rather than actually getting injured in the field, the guard probably just settled down. We'd be happy for him if he didn't seem so miserable about it.

 

Who knows if the same counts for Sojiro, and he has a family that we don't know much about - but either way, we reckon he'd run a bar like it was the Navy.
