    @peterab said:As for the confusion over "freezing," seems like Abby was getting temperatures in Celsius, and Vinny in Fahrenheit, which is odd. I'm Canadian, so I notice these things, but it's unders...

    @splodge: Yeah, I can see that. That move never really felt good for me in the first game, so I generally avoided using it. I think it's part of why I felt like I hit a wall in my skill progress.I did...
