Financial Post - What BioWare's Mass Effect team can learn from Assassinís Creed IV: Black Flag. Thanks Acleacius.
But as I explored the Caribbean Sea at the helm of this grand ship, my mind kept returning to another famous video game transport: Mass Effectís Normandy, a spacecraft that became as important to the sci-fi soap operaís story and as beloved by its fans as many of the seriesí main characters.

Itís likely that Bioware, over the course of three games, managed to make its vessel a slightly more vital piece of the narrative puzzle than Ubisoft did the Jackdaw. The Normandy not only has its own personality via an agreeably jokey AI, itís also home to many of the gameís key characters, and the setting for several important interactions and conversations.

However, Ubisoftís team did something that has always proven elusive in Biowareís games: It made the Jackdaw feel like an authentic, functioning vehicle over which we had complete control.
