Red Faction B.E.A.S.T revealed as canceled Wii project

Do you know what happens to Wii games that have a chance of being neat? They usually disappear, unfortunately. Such is the fate of Red Faction B.E.A.S.T, an interesting looking action game for the Wii that THQ has sadly canned. The above video shows off the Gears-esque gameplay and it appears that this one had potential.

It was being worked on by Locomotive, but THQ has seen fit to shut that studio down, and throw B.E.A.S.T on the scrapheap at the same time. The above video is only prototype footage, but it sets the scene for what could have been another nice "hardcore" outing for those that like their Wii games a little less twee. 

So another videogame falls prey to the demon that is corporate restructuring. Since it was never announced, this is a case of "easy come, easy go" for us gamers. Regardless, it's still a shame to see a game prematurely killed off.

Considering Project H.A.M.M.E.R was also scrapped a couple of years ago, I think it's safe to say that games with silly abbreviations need to keep away from the Wii. This is why F.E.A.R was never given waggle controls.
