I think you can only counter the first three or so hits of a combo, before you're knocked off balance. I know both your feet need to be on the ground, and you have to initate the counter hold or block as the attack is coming in, not before.

And counters dish out "massive damage" as the Crab guy at the Sony press conference stated.

As MrFunky mentioned, sparring is the best practice you'll get.

Don't even sewat it. Everybody's got to learn, at least once.

Sparring is a mode you get on the main menu. Scroll far to the left or right to see it. In that, you can choose which character you want to be and which one you want to beat up (a favorite of mine is Eliot in his stupid-ass "11" hoodie. Damn emo punk kids...)

Hope that helps you out. Happy countering!
