Aliens: Colonial Marines 'Survivor' trailer has few survivors

Aliens: Colonial Marines is all about hardened space jocks taking on xenomorphs. But if the movie Aliens taught us one thing, it's that all the badass in the world is no match for an angry killing machine with a tiny mouth inside its larger, conveniently human-head sized mouth.

All that makes the new "Survivor Mode" of Colonial Marines a bit ironic. It's ostensibly about holding ground and withstanding attacks from xenomorphs, but the tension of that situation comes from being absurdly outmatched. The results are predictably gruesome. At one point an alien rips open its jaw and explodes. That happens. How do you even deal with that?

You can check out the trailer below to start formulating your hopeless strategies in preparation for its February 12 launch.
