American McGee's Alice Vorpal Blade replica exists, is irrationally desired

Videogame weapon replicas are almost as common as videogame weapons, but this one is kind of special - it's the Vorpal Blade from American McGee's Alice, and it's awesome. At least, it is to me.


Above: Epic Weapons' replica | Right: Alice holding the very same stabber, and looking awfully perturbed

1,000 of the blades will be created to celebrate the game's 10 year anniversary. You can pre-order one of the $89.95 slicers from Epic Weapons, or at Comic-Con. Also at Comic-Con will be an auction for the first 25 knives produced, for those super-serious collector folk.

If you've never played Alice, get the hell on it! But sorry, console folk, Alice has never left its PC womb, which is a shame. Go on and say it's a good thing, PC fanboys, but  there's really nothing I can think of that would make Alice not work on consoles - it's perfectly suited, actually. A remake, or just a direct port to XBLA/PSN, would make me squeal. If all you know American McGee for is Bad Day LA, you're missing out!

Apparently Spicy Horse is developing a sequel, tentatively known as "Alice: Madness Returns," a title EA applied to trademark, but we haven't heard much about it yet.

Oh right, the replica - isn't it cool?

    They better not make it a damn remake and/or a downloadable xbox live arcade and psn game! I want a full game sequel!! Remake would be dumb because we played the 1st 1 before. And a downloadable one would be dumb because who wants a partial game?

    In the sequel, could Alice be a monkey? We like monkeys.

    I'd get the game in a second if it were on Steam.

    screw the blade (though pretty awesome) Give me the Jabberwocky's eyestaff!!! With realistic beam of death power!!!... Or a blue flashlight will work i guess.

    Cool, and, not to mention, still culturally relevant!

    If I remember correctly...my favorite weapons were the jacks and the mallet. The secondary attacks were bad ass too. I may just have to order this..

    It's a Quake 3 engine game. If your computer can run Internet Explorer 8, then 99% that it can run A.M. Alice. Quake Live (the free online variant of Quake 3) can also give a good indication if your computer can run it.
