Have You Played… MDK2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Nebulous: Mass Effect Andromeda Due In Early 2017

Last time we talked about vague release windows for Mass Effect Andromeda [official site], you told me were planning to spawn a child in time for its launch. You told me you would name that child Ianlusive Manfred. Well, I’m not going to argue with you again, but I will tell you to wait a few months to to begin spawning. BioWare’s RPG is now due in 2017, some time before the end of March.

If you’re really desperate for scraps, hey, folks have dug up a better look at the guy from that trailer?
