Really Itagaki? You do know the whole point of hitstun is that you are unable to fight back during it right? As in unable to fight back when attacked? What the hell sense does it make for me to hit someone and they fucking counter me during my damn combo? Worse, DOA4 even lets you counter during wallsplat, wtf? This is retarded as hell, it’s even worse than parrying in SF3.
It’s not even remotely realistic. Wtf sense does it make for this to be possible? if you got in a bar fight, and punched some guy in the face, he’s not gonna suddenly grab your damn arm and throw you over the counter. yet in DOA, that kind of shit is possible. I guess they all hit like bitches, seeing as how they can fight back DURING hitstun.
Absolute garbage. This is why Tekken is the superior fighting game to DOA, and why Tekken is going on 7 and Tekken vs SF, while DOA is dead.
