It is reaching my last nerves, and i just needed to vent, sorry to use this thread but you guys listen...
I can definitely relate to this but with my mom and my wife (sorry bridgypoo!) It's okay man, just try and be patient. For me it's more... complicated and related to my mental illness, but ESPECIALLY with my mom I feel she doesn't get it (I get and have had some VERY bad side effects from a lot of the psych pills I've been tried on, one even nearly killed me recently (beginning of Sept.) and put me in the hospital.) She still suggests different medicines for me to take, when even something as simple as benadryl to help me sleep makes me feel like $%^& the next day. Just woozy, lightheaded, drunken, terrible. It's because of how all kinds of different things interact with what I take.... and how all of them, as well as some other crazy things I've let psychiatry do to me over the last 3 years have affected me. Unfortunately, she's a nurse and doesn't "get it" either in terms of looking at the big picture and realizing there's probably more danger in some of the meds than benefit. As well as my state of mind not being totally related to my illness, and a lot of it being more related to my political beliefs, outlook on life, personal experiences, experiences with my relatives and other people, etc.
My advice is to just try to be patient and remember the generation gap... either that or, sometimes you have to be a bit harsh to get the point across if they just refuse to listen. (This might mean yelling a bit or arguing just for the sake of getting it through, though depending on your situation and temperament as well as your father's, this might not be a good idea.) The problem is.... yeah most people don't listen. Even when you repeat things. I hate to quote this guy but.... "If you repeat something often enough, people will believe it" (not giving the quote source). Just stick with it, and if worse comes to worse, find a place to get away even if you just lock yourself in a bedroom for a while to cool off. I definitely get this though man, it's difficult living with others sometimes.

I have a bad habit of buying $4 gamepads when i see them.
I briefly brought up volume 2 just to look at it. I didn't even know what era 7 - 10 were from. I'm guessing 7 was a GBA game though from the little window with borders. Didn't play long enough to form an opinion. Besides not apparently having a way to skip passed the little movie sequence.
What is "steam link"? Streaming it to a different PC/console over the net? I don't use features like that usually. My suggestion for a decent gamepad would probably be a cheapo Rock Candy wired 360 pad from Target if they still have them. Got a red one for my rig, a blue one for Bridgett's, and a green one for my brother's. They seem to work great, no issues, no need to remap buttons in most of the compilation games but especially in the Japanese console port games I'm usually interested in (anything from Bamco.....or Koei). Works great for me anyway in 99% of games.
7 was on SNES and was a continuation of the classic series (They made MM6 for NES, then made MMX for SNES, and possibly MMX2, and then decided to bring the classic style Mega Man e.g. blue bomber to SNES). MM8 was the next one in the classic series but on PSX and Saturn (I played the Saturn version a bit. REALLY awesome graphics and fluid animation in that one.) Then the series sat for like 10 years and around 2009 or so they made a MM9 for Wii, 360 and PS3, this was after the indie/retro game resurgence in that generation. So, MM9 is like the NES games but they REALLY cranked the difficulty up to ten. Shortly after they made a sequel, and that was MM10. (9 and 10 are just way too tough for me. I'm sure if I dedicated myself I could clear them but I'm not big on games that are difficult just to be difficult. No fun to me. Unless it's a JRPG like the SaGa series, love those but they are also ungodly tough almost to a stupid degree, requiring you to find ways to exploit and break the game basically. Not really the same since they're turn based though and not twitch action or pattern memorization).
Don't ask me about anything after Mega Man X4 though or any of the side or spinoff games. I know the history of the classic series but not the X series. Totally lost there....
