Black Nerd Squad

Black Nerd Squad

"Black Nerd Squad is the brain child of two Black female nerds that wanted to create a place where any nerd could come to find the latest in anime, mange, comics, entertainment and more.  Our squad of writers and contributors have a diverse background of interests and talents.

However, Black Nerd Squad was not created as a means of separation from all nerdom. We want to represent the small segment of nerdocracy that often gets neglected: nerds and geeks of color.  It’s a way of letting anyone that feels ashamed or has been picked on  because of their unique  interests. There are so many Black nerds, or blerds, out there that feel they don’t have a community where they can just be themselves. There are more of us than you could imagine! As such, we decided on a name to represent not only our background but also our love for all nerdy things. Though we will be want to grow a community of people of color, everyone of every race is welcome. By starting with one common interest, we are able to build on this interest and learn more about each other. We know Nerdywood may not be the means to erase the color lines but it’s our mission to give it a try.

Our ultimate goals is to provide a website for lesser known Black comic writers, illustrations, comic book publishers, animators and other professional Black nerds can share and promote their work. We know that promotions and advertising can become very costly when you are just starting out. However, we want to provide an affordable place to promote your work. Ideally, we want to partner with other new and established Blerd sites and partner to book tables at trade shows and comics for these artists to reach a larger audience. Since we are not artists ourselves, we feel it is our duty to get your voice and your artistry out to the world.

Welcome to the Squad!" - Black Nerd Squad

  • This isn’t going to be some comprehensive review of the gameplay, characters, fighting system, etc.. of Overwatch. This is my general excitement a new type of game (new to me, that is) that I never thought I would like. And how this new game has opened my eyes to the wonder of the world of the team first-person shooter. I love Overwatch. I never knew I would feel this level of excitement for a game that wasn’t a new God of War, Assassin’s Creed, Final Fantasy or Gears of War. Or a good LEGO game (my guilty pleasure). Those are my staples, my go-to games. Whenever there is one on the horizon, I usually pre-order it and have it ready and waiting when I get home from work (Bless you, Amazon)! Now, I heard about all of the excitement and hype about Overwatch but didn’t think anything of it. It’s not one of my staples so who cares, right? Not that I am opposed to trying something new. I have managed to discover lots of fantastic games based on recommendations or reputation. But no one I knew was playing Overwatch, so I moved on. But the more I read the [...]

  • The Division Beta at a Glance: Ubisoft’s Answer to Destiny Ubisoft’s The Division is a fascinating marriage between two popular — though usually separate — genres. Imagine if you will that Destiny and Rainbow Six had a baby…. Well they did in a 3rd person shooter and they named it “The Division”.   Backstory From what we know in the beta, most of the city of Manhattan is placed under quarantine after smallpox outbreak. Your character is part of the Strategic Homeland Division (SHD) and the mission is to restore order from chaos and track down the source of the virus. (maybe add more if there is more posted on the Ubisoft website).   Game Play As you make your way through the game and complete main missions, side missions, and have random encounters with thugs and find missing data to piece the puzzle together you earn experience points and currency. Currency can be used to purchase mods, gear and weapons while your experience points are used to learn new skills along the way. The game employs a day/night cycle which alters how some enemies behave. There is also an amazing time based weather system with snow storms that can [...]
