Sexy new Beetles for sexy new games: Why EA needs to make Beetle Adventure Racing a second time

Gamer's Guide to, Wednesday 27th April 2011: Get ready for more Slug-Bug dead arms - Global car shows and hilarious Super Bowl commercials tell us there's a new Volkswagen Beetle on the horizon, and GGTL writer Andrew Testerman discusses why that makes it a perfect time to resurrect the Beetle Adventure Racing series from EA's dusty archives for the Wii or Kinect.

GGTL: "It’s been a good twelve years since Beetle Adventure Racing! graced the shores of the N64, but a good franchise never truly dies, and EA would do well to capitalize on the hype surrounding the new Beetle and release another entry in the Adventure Racing! series.

Now now, I'm sorry but there is only one car that should be referred to as The Donkey when it comes to Top Gear. That car is Oliver. Swim little donkey!
