FALLOUT 4! War, War never changes.

So, it’s time. No more hoaxing, no more lying, just this video. Fallout 4 has been officially announced for next gen consoles and PC. We’ve been waiting for this for what seems like forever (7 years since Fallout 3, about 4 or 5 since New Vegas), and now we have actual confirmation from Bethesda. My rule of ‘Don’t trust ANYTHING til you see it on Bethesda’s official sites’ paid off. Now, we know very little... Read more

I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse

BBC Three are looking for applicants for a new reality show called I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse. Zombie fanatics and fitness enthusiasts should apply to  zombies@tigeraspect.co.uk for an application form. Applicants must be able to attend auditions in the UK. Now, personally, I think zombies are a little old now – overplayed. They’re the least likely apocalypse, and everyone has added them to everything in a cynical attempt to hit the zeitgeist. But, I may... Read more

Post-Apocalyptic E3

Lots of post-apocalyptic games revealed at E3 2013 The big news of E3 was obviously the struggle between the PS4 and the Xbox One. That’s not really of interest to us here at ICoS unless that struggle leads to the destruction of all we know and love. Instead, I’ve found information on post-apocalyptic games of interest revealed at this years E3.  It’s looking like a good couple of years for the apocalypse. Check under the... Read more

Happy Apoco-Anniversary!

So, we’re two years old this month. I KNOW, right? If the site was a human being it’d be toddling around and breaking things. The main thing I’m surprised about is that the apocalypse HASN’T happened in that two years. I was so certain that I’d be dressed in oddly-stylish rags, scavenging the ruins of civilisation for a toothbrush, by now. Read more

Author Feature: John Xero.

Long-time readers may remember John Xero from his brilliant short story Ragestorm Requiem. Well, those of you who liked it will be pleased to hear he has a book out. This is The New Plan is a collection of his short stories and flash fiction, and what’s even better, most of them are apocalyptic or dystopian in some way. As for why I’m not reviewing this, John Xero is actually a personal, real-life friend of... Read more

Pack your bags and go NOW.

You know how I told you about this?   Yeah, well, now there’s been a similar attack in Maryland. Two within a week. If I were you, I’d get OUT. And if I were the British Government, I’d close the borders and patrol them with our army and navy shooting anyone coming from abroad. It’s fairly easy to defend an island when you have gunboats and a few nukes. Seriously, you don’t have to run... Read more

Dark Horse Extends Free Comic Book Day Through the End of May

Did you miss out on Free Comic Book Day this past Saturday? If you did, you also missed out on the Buffy/ The Guild preview (?) issue and the Star Wars/Serenity one-shots offered by Dark Horse. That’s sad. You missed the space pirates, bandits, aliens, and heroes. You missed out on high-flying hijinks, and intergalactic world  universe saving awesomeness. Lucky for you Dark Horse, specifically, Dark Horse Digital are nice people (is a nice person?... Read more

Instructions for the post-apocalypse

For once, these instructions are not coming from me. Or Ann. Or Tavia. Shocking, isn’t it? It seems that we are not the only apocalypse-obsessed people on the planet. Also, not everyone wants to announce that obsession over the Internet. Also shocking. Anyway. Last week, I came across this article from Wired. And it fascinated me. So much that I decided to write about it. It seems that, way back in the Before Time (by... Read more

Edible microchip: good for your health?

So last Wednesday, on January 18, there was this little online movement to protest SOPA. Maybe you heard of it? (Students everywhere may have lost their minds temporarily, since English Wikipedia was one of the protesting sites and went dark for an entire day. Hell, forget the students, *I* went slightly nuts that day, since most of my daily go-to sites had gone dark. Like ICoS.) Ahem. Anyway. When discussing the SOPA blackout, Tavia and I also briefly discussed how... Read more
