No Consensus, Kept (name is "Noconsensus")

I swear we need to restructure this thing at some point, most of the time deletion falls under Template:Quickdelete/Category:Quick Deletions anyway, and this is mainly for things where deleting may be questionable. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 01:03, May 22, 2011 (UTC)

Highway 99

Keep/Disagree with merge: If we start merging highway articles into the Rockport main article, it's going to become cluttered and unwieldly. That's the point of secondary articles - so the main articles don't turn into long lengths of clutter. -MarkKB 22:57, April 14, 2012 (UTC)

Beetle Adventure Racing

See this. It's near wholly cribbed from the Wikipedia page for the game, there are no references given for the claims of the game originally being a port of High Stakes for the N64, the developers have not worked on an actual Need for Speed game, the list goes on.

The only credit for the creator is that he must have planned this out beforehand. Krieger22 (talk) 05:15, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

I've re-written the entire article, but I'm not that eloquent so it's a bit of a stub. For proof on the whole "was going to be an NFS game" thing, see the following video. TortleOfWar (talk) 06:37, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

Beetle Adventure Racing

Why are the articles for Beetle Adventure Racing and the VW New Beetle marked for deletion? I see Motor City Online and Shift 2: Unleashed in the games category on the home page despite the fact that neither of them contain "Need for Speed" in the title of the game. I feel like due to the fact that BAR was originally going to be High Stakes for the N64, it at least deserves its own article on this wiki.

That's because Motor City Online was originally called Need for Speed: Motor City which you can read the background here and in the Wikipedia article of the game. Shift 2: Unleashed is a direct sequel to Need for Speed: Shift.

You do not always need to use the "Need for Speed" moniker in every game. Plt. Pao Ayo (talk) 06:57, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

I've posted a video under the other Beetle Adventure Racing topic here showing the "NEED FOR SPEED" banner in the debug menu. TortleOfWar (talk) 07:07, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

Be wary about it. Without any confirmation from authentic sources, I'm afraid it cannot be considered a Need for Speed game. Plt. Pao Ayo (talk) 07:27, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

I've found a few more links, some hold more weight than others. The BAR page on Giantbomb claims that it runs on a modified version of the PS1 Hot Pursuit engine, but other reviews have claimed that it runs on a modified version of Paradigm's F1 game engine, so that's something that would need to be either confirmed or deconfirmed. I've also found a BAR wiki someone apparently set up that claims an NFS logo was found in the game's data, and most of what's on it seems pretty legit but I've got no way to confirm this without trying to find a way to extract all the game's graphical assets. The final thing I've found so far is a personal page of someone who worked on both BAR and multiple entries in the NFS franchise, tying the games together at least spiritually. I'm going to go ahead and link both the wiki's NFS leftovers page, and the EA employee's personal page. I'm probably going to go to bed for now, but I'm off work tomorrod so I'll keep looking for some kind of confirmation.!/The_Untold_Content%3F/Need_for_Speed_leftovers
