(It is from a game called Ys. There are 7 Ys games right now
Ancient Ys vanished: Omen
Ancient Ys vanished: the final chapter
Ys: Oath in Felghana
Ys 4: Mask of the sun/dawn of ys (two different versions)
Ys 5: Kefin, the lost city of sand
Ys 6: The Ark of Napishtim
and a prologue to the series Ys Origins
Only one of those games came out in english and that is the sixth game. Ys: the ark of napishtim.
However it is possible to order the first two games from japan and get them patched in english and the third game has a patch in the making coming out. (these are all for the computer except for ys 6 which is also for the ps2)
The fourth game is for the super nintendo and you can download a rom and an english patch for that. (The fourth game takes place before the third game actually)
The third game has a snes version of the game that has an english patch, but the computer version is way better.
The fifth game is also for the ps2 but has no patch...it is for the super nintendo and a patch for the snes version is on the way.
They also have an anime based off of the first two games called "The ancient books of Ys". It is an oooooooooooooooooooold anime though so the art style may be out dated. I liked it though, so you may want to look it up when you get the chance. watch the opening movies for the first three games and ys 6 here.

It is about a young adventurer named Adol Christin. He originally goes to a continent called Eseria because he heard that strange things were happening there and nobody could get past a hurricane barrier. (He got through but washed ashore unconscious) It turns out that demons are attacking. A fortune teller tells him that she was waiting for a red haired swordsman chosen by the twin goddesses to free them. Adol goes out to help everyone and actually meets up with the goddesses (He doesn't know they are goddesses at the time) and one of them falls in love with him. Adol learns that there is a continent floating in the air where the goddesses tried sealing the demons too. After Adol saves Esteria they transport him to Ys, the floating continent so that he can free the people there. It has a really good story with great characters.
I'll pm you the wall papers once I get back to my desktop at home. I don't have them on my laptop.
There are a lot more than 7 Ys games =). I'm a super Falcom fangirl. There are also 2 Ys games on the cell phone, typing of Ys, the two completely different Ys 4's (Dawn of Ys and Mask of the Sun or whatever), and about a million different versions of Ys 1 and 2 (Ys Perfect, Ys Complete, etc.). I've beat 'em all (yay for hongfire and the psp) hehe. Except Origin =(. Playing it through as Claw on nightmare now =(. It's mean.
Also - Ys III (Wanderers from Ys) came out in the US on SNES and PCE (I believe). No patch is needed. It was also released on the NES (made the crappy game even worse in my opinion) in Japan. Also the YsF patch is complete. I've talked to Nightwolve (he's an ass) since I'm helping on the ed6 translation and he has utilities for it (but we won't be using them. He wants us to release the patch on his site, for money [that would all go to him], and give him name credit as the head of the project - just for using something he made. He wouldn't do any actual work), and he is keeping the patch donation-only (he's an ass). And I feel that the first two games are best in their NES forms - which have had translation patches for years. Also, all the Ys 5 translation teams gave up on it. And, to be fair, it wasn't that great of a game. A watered down Seiken Densetsu 2+ game engine that ruined Ys, and a crappy storyline. And it was so easy that Falcom even released an 'expert' cartridge of the game - and that was ridiculously easy too.

Oh - and if you want bigger versions of most of those pictures, AIM/YIM/MSN/email/PM me since I have high quality scans of the Falcom History Legend of Illustrations art book.
Here's my desktop:
My Laptop (what I use the most) has no screenshots available and I can't take one now due to various reasons. But you can see shots of me playing games and stuff on my winehq page:
My laptop's resolution is 1920x1200 =)
I'll post screenshots as soon as I can.
Here's my desktop/fileserver:
That's a really old one though. Like two years ago. It still works though. Although I touched up the theme to be a bit smaller and cleaner and I'm using some odd random Air wallpaper...
And yes - I am a girl =)
And a pretty feminine girl. Hell, I just got done crying because of friend/love things (long story). I just... Use Gentoo since I'm also super liberal and I can't support Microsoft, and I <3 Falcom. I'm also not much of a gamer - but I love Falcom, FFVI, and Tales of Phantasia. And some random other series (The Soul Blazer/Illusions of Gaia/Terranigma series) and games (Seiken Densetsu I and III, Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past, Super Mario RPG, Eternal Arcadia, etc.) and stuff. But, realistically, I only put like 4 hours into games every couple weeks.
Please don't see me as some super butch like... Gamer... Guy... Thing. I like guys (long as they're sweet and all-together and can support me when I'm down. Pity that's, like, noone), I love chocolate, I <3 winx and pretty things (I <333333333 Rainbow Brite), etc. I just have some random odd habits.
If you also can't tell, I'm kinda OCD sometimes and super-paranoid about what people think of me. Hell this is over my 20th edit. And I swear it's my final one! I need to sleep! Work in 11 hours and I need sleep!
