*Cough*Plasma blade*cough*

If you mean the Plasma Blade item in UFO AI, yes, I've known about that for as long as since it was added to the game - And unless things were dramatically changed lately and no one told me, it doesn't function the same as the light-saber weapons from Star Wars.  It does have a few similarities in common, yes, but still distinctly different.

Plasma blade makes perfect realistic sense. Based from a plasma cutter, using a magnetic field arranged to attract the hot plasma down the length of the weapon, with the magnets protected by a thin ceramic layer to prevent melting. (Heat demagnetizes, so it'd have to be an electro-magnet anyway.)

Not a fast sword fighting weapon, but capable of cutting through a door.

That's going a little far, but the intention was to make a joke regarding Destructavator's choice of "silly bull****" [sic] being something that actually has a superficially similar item already in the game rather than to make any serious critique of plasma blades.

Yeah. It's more like a chainsaw than a blade.
