I've linked my account, but there doesn't seem to be an option for that when I look at the Mii options

I was able to transfer my Mii through an Amiibo figurine. Did you try that?

Nah.  I don't have an amiibo yet.

Any recommendations for digital titles $20 and under?

I’m pretty sure they are under $20, but Into The Breach is a fantastic puzzler from the guys who made FTL. It’s like chess meets giant robots. And Dead Cells is also a lot of fun, a 2D dark souls sort of platformer.

Celeste, Hollow Knight, Okami HD, Grim Fandango, and Valkyria Chronicles are all awesome. They can all be had elsewhere, but it's really nice to play them portably.

Got a Switch yesterday!  Started it today.  A friend told me that it is ridiculously easy to navigate and use and I'm feeling it.  If anyone wants my Friend Code, let me know.

I’ll take it. There doesn’t seem to be a way to actually communicate with your friends on the switch, which is kind of lame. But I still like seeing what others are playing.

I put it on my WishList. I'll play it when it goes on sale.

So I'm about an hour and a half into YIIK. It does invite comparisons to Earthbound. The tone is very surreal, and the NPCs blurt out their idiosyncrasies in amusing ways. It occasionally borders on pretentious (I think it's the first-person narration during key scenes) but it's not so bad that it's off-putting. The RPG elements so far are super-easy, but I'm only an hour and a half in. There's also some light puzzle solving, usually involving the pushing of pressure pads and switches. The protagonist is grown-up(ish) so the adventure matches that. (There's even a little salty language, just in case anyone was thinking of playing with the kiddies.)

I'm not entirely sold, but I like it so far and I'm intrigued enough by the story to keep playing at this point.

Another great thing about the switch: power went out in my entire building for a day, but I was able to keep on playing.
