I do think giving most if not all the cast hit confirms would help balance the game considerably as well.
Honestly, they still don't render lv. 2/3's obsolete by any stretch and I feel like landing lv. 1's without hit confirms is so damn hard it's all but rendered most people who can't do it with useless lv. 1's. --- Sanity is a one trick pony, all you get with it is rational thought, but with crazy the sky's the limit.
I'm pretty sure Parappa and Big Daddy don't have hit confirms.
Spike, Heihachi, Nariko, Dante (Arguably), Big Daddy, Sir Dan, and several others don't have any reliable ways to land level 1 making them totally outclassed. --- PSN: Weeeler http://www.youtube.com/user/LPWeewer
