I have no problems entering the eShop or anything like that. I'm just wondering if any problems will occur once I actually download something.

I'm not entirely sure why you'd need fake accounts, but regardless, it seems like it should work out fine. Not that I've tried. I have an account linked to my own NNID and I don't live in the UK, either. It doesn't seem like there should be any issues, though.

Living in Australia, there are some titles that don't make it here the same time as Europe so I have a secondary UK NNID that I use for those titles, no issues at all.
Dunno with the Club Nintendo stuff but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Because we don't have Club Nintendo in Sweden. So the only way to get anything Club Nintendo related is to have a account in a different country.

Looking forward to: No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again

The new Rainbow Road doesn't really gel with me. Visuals are nice, but the track design and length leaves a lot to be desired. I'm not even particularly fond of the theme. Bowser's Castle looks epic though. N64 Rainbow Road also makes up for what it lacks too.

I agree, I expected A LOT more with this Rainbow Road. It's not that long, there are no loops, it's nowhere NEAR as insane as Mario Kart Wii's Rainbow Road, and it just doesn't look challenging. Maybe it's because the developers over hyped it by saying: "we did something special this time around" but I just don't see it. It looks great but bland in comparison to other Rainbow Roads.

The only thing I would warn about is when downloads go account based (and transferring games to the next system is account based, not system based) you will lose those free games

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

@Retro_on_theGo I wouldn't say it's the worst, I believe Mario Kart Super Circuit takes the cake with that one but it is indeed a massive disappointment.

@Spanjard Quite awhile due to the fact that this course is supposed to be the FINALE course of the game. Rainbow Road should've been this breath taking and definitive experience that tests the skill of the player and blows you away. It does NONE of that from the looks of it. Rainbow Road is such a big part of the Mario Kart series that when it fails to deliver, it is very disappointing.

I disagree, rainbow road on 64 for example, was definitely not the hardest course, not even close. Also, it was way too long and a bit boring tbh.

I agree that 64's Rainbow Road was long and boring and bland. It's the only Rainbow Road that I'd never want to race on.
I actually enjoy Super Circuit's because a simple Mushroom boost makes for great jumps and huge shortcuts if your skilled.
Haven't seen 8's Rainbow Road due to spoilers, I want to experience it myself.

Cubic Centimeters, it's referring to the size of the engines.

Probably a combination of polish and nostalgia xp not saying the series is bad by any sense, but a lot of people has memories of playing with mates etc, myself included.
The games themselves are fun, but I wouldn't say they do anything truly unique when compared to other good kart racers.

I really hope they make the stamps more reasonable. In 3D World people killed the community by posting tons of fart jokes of the game.

Well that's miiverse for you. Horrifying
