Watch us play New Super Luigi U from 5pm BST

Take me slightly higher.

When I was an infant, my parents lived in a flat above a GPs' office called The New Surgery. Upon returning to my home town nearly 30 years later, I discovered it was still The New Surgery. We sometimes joke about Nintendo's use of the name "New" in connection with Mario Bros. games in the 21st century, but apparently its detachment from reality has nothing on Buckinghamshire PCT.

New Super Luigi U, unlike Mario's games or the place where I got my BCG, can at least lay some claim to being of recent origin, given that it comes out in Europe today, stars Mario's brother for once, and is that unlikeliest of things - an expansion pack for a Mario game. If you'd like to see what it's like before you look it up on the Wii U eShop, not to mention escape these horrendous paragraphs of fluff, why not join Ian Higton's live stream of the game from 5pm BST this fine(ly misty) Thursday evening?

Just click on the below when the time comes.
