BTW: What's that Falcom game in your sig? I'm a fan of the Ys series, but I don't know all Falcom games.
It's funny, my fondest childhood memory of the ST is that the cursor turns into a bee when it's "busy" loading, and I'd be sitting there trying to sting things with it until the game loaded. Haha.
As for Falcom, they have 2 big series. One is Ys which is fairly well known outside Japan. The other is their RPG series Legend of Heroes (also known as Dragon Slayer for the first 2 games) which is unfortunately not very popular out West, although I do believe there are English releases all the way up to the first chapter of #6. My sig is what will be the new entry in Legend of Heroes this year.
