(a) memorization. with enough practice, you get the feel for which special bits will do what to you, and also where you need to be to catch the special bits (there are some places that are nearly impossible to get through without catching 'em)
(b) the way the bars work is that you go up levels for filling the one by doing well, and then there's the secondary bar that fills as you miss beats. no matter what level you're at (Hyper, Mega, Super, whatev'), as soon as the secondary bar fills, you drop one level. If you're just on Hyper (or whatever the starting level is, i never pay attention lol) , that's when you drop down into Nether. The bars work the same in Nether as they do in the other levels, only if you fill the secondary bar in Nether by missing too many beats, you'll lose the game.
(c) haven't played multiplayer with it yet, so i dunno, lol :3

Do you really think people r going to give away personal info? I mean its crazy. I think PictoChat should be online.

considering the system's target age is silly, impressionable kids, i absolutely believe there would be kids giving out personal info and people trying to hook up with minors via PictoChat, 'friend' system or not. too easy to make random 'friends' online, which ruins it for the rest of us.

There's already the Wi-fi FC exchange for everyone to upload all their friend codes to... don't worry, it was a good idea, it just already exists. Also, Magi is right about the separate threads being better for organizing matches and stuff, as this thread would rapidly fill with random conversation all around the FCs and be hard to navigate. :3

You'd totally think we were talking on MSN and I knew when you were gonna post or something. Of course that would not be so.

Are you just having some fun with your new friend, or is there something I should know for serious? :|

Actually, there's already an active Wi-Fi FC exchange thread -- even though it's technically in the Wii section of the forums, i see people discussing DS FCs in there. You're more than welcome to comb that thread and post your collected results in a reply to it if you'd like one big 'database' post. as for organizing matches, the best thing to do is to check for a dedicated thread on the forums and use that so that everything is public and out in the open and interested parties can see who's active or wants to play. Uno has one, as does bomberman blitz. I didn't find one for DQ: Monsters, so you're more than welcome to make one if you like. You can also check the chat at any time to see if anyone's on who wants to play.

@madgear: are you currently stuck? Do you need help getting through OoT?

No thanks, I've abandoned that game for now - I'll go back to it another time. I'd rather play through it on my own - I managed it with Twilight Princess but Ocarina isn't quite as clear in where you should be going. If I do it, it'll be without using a guide - I'm funny that way.

just remember, i'm here if you need even the slightest hint to get moving, man. i know how you feel about doing it by yourself without guides, though. :3

i think there's a subtle difference between the questions, guys -- 'best' perhaps leans more toward critical acclaim and how the general public feels about a game, but 'most successful' is more along the lines of how much money it brought in for the publisher. That's why i didn't bother locking this one. Can we get back on topic now? :3

if you're gonna be in Kyoto anyway, i'd recommend Himeji (and specifically, Himeji Castle). If you want some absolutely breathtaking photos of a Japanese castle that's never had to be rebuilt after fire or attack, that's the place you want to go. There's also a very nice garden next to it where you can get some good photos too.
