Starcraft 2 to Allow for Modes Other than Real Time Strategy

Or other than a fighting game, if you’re snarky like me and prefer making fun of Starcraft while secretly lusting after it. Like an old lady, standing in Barnes and Noble, wondering if she could get away with buying a copy of Hustler.

We’ve got an article cooking up on this topic, but we found both of these too cool to not post about. Apparently, some lucky people in the Starcraft 2 beta (not me, alas) have managed to create full conversion mods making the game into Starcraft Kart and a Touhou game, respectively. Which is pretty freaking sweet. Hit the jump for the TouHou recreation, which looks pretty much pitch perfect. Though it lacks some bullets.
