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.

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 fromEpic 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.Goon and say it's a good thing, PC fanboys, but there's really nothingI 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 McGeefor isBad 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?
