Gearbox Delaying 'Aliens: Colonial Marines,' Release New Trailer to Make the Wait Harder

I understand the immense amount of pressure Gearbox is under with the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines.  They've been handed the rare opportunity to create a game that, according to 20th Century Fox, is official canon, and had the input from Ridley Goddamn Scott to make sure that it hit all the right notes.  I can understand the multitude of delays, first from Spring 2012 to Fall 2012, and the new release date they just announced.  But giving a new trailer that shows just how amazing this game looks in action?  That's just mean.  More from G4 after the break.

The new, final release month (not even a day, guys?) is February 2013, which now means that it's once again facing off against 2K's Bioshock Infinite, which also was recently delayed from the fall to early 2013. 

Of course, when you're already eagerly awaiting a game, seeing an amazing new trailer makes the wait even more agonizing.  The tension and suspense in the two minutes on display here is positively gripping, and the presentation looks absolutely gorgeous.  This sort of torture should be outlawed by the Geneva Convention.
