I couldn't make myself do parry rush with any kind of consistency. It was too fast for me to do it and know what to expect.

And yes, I'm very interested in how the hosses will work in this game. I'm guessing that people who try to roll up with rushdowns with holes are gonna get their meats totally lumped.

I love Drive Impact. I too got to the point where I could bait it, react to it, and of course, punish the shit out it. And even better, I could program people to be scared to do it. Which of course means I get to use it too.
