For the musou question:
I want Omega Force to make a shooting game that has the same level structure (battlefields with control points and enemy officers) as musou games but the player character and their allies have guns. Maybe the enemies do too but maybe they are run at you monsters. When Omega Force bring their A game, they are impeccable. Not all musou games are great but some of them are just brilliant and they’re clearly a hell of a studio. The best musou game is Samurai Warriors 2 Empires on the 360.
This new style should be called Shootou games and they should reboot Bullet Witch. They could also do a new Lost Planet that has big battlefields and the light heartedness of EX Troopers.
Now, the temptation for the impetuous would be to say “They should do EDF!”
You are wrong. EDF is only brilliant because Sandlot make them. They exist on a knife edge mix of balancing, pacing, bizarre but you kind of get it control decisions and Xbox 360 art. If Omega Force did one, it would probably be brilliant but in a different way and if they’re going to do that, do something else.
