Promotion Combines Five Independent Developers and Offers Fans 60 Percent Discounts on Select Downloadable Games

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Starting today, Wii U owners can take advantage of limited-time discounts on select indie games in the Nintendo eShop. Now through Feb. 13, fans who own any of the participating games already – or purchase one at full price during the promotion – will qualify to receive 60 percent off all other participating games.

The indie games that are participating in this exciting two-week Nintendo eShop sale include:

Toki Tori 2+ from Two Tribes Publishing is a puzzle adventure with no tutorials, no hand-holding and no one telling players what to do. The fun is in exploring and overcoming the obstacles of the lush forest island.
Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party from KnapNok Games is a game for two to eight people. Players sit in a circle around the Wii U GamePad, spin a virtual bottle and collaborate with friends to complete the most challenges.
BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien from Gaijin Games Inc. is a rhythm-music, auto-running platformer. Players run, jump, slide, kick and soar through fantastic environments with amazing soundtracks.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams from Black Forest Games is a fast-paced platformer that lets players morph at will between two dynamically different dream worlds. The game combines punchy graphics and tight controls with the challenge of retro platforming.
Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition from WayForward delivers players to a world in which Space Hooligans have escaped custody and are wreaking havoc all over Planet Land. Players must do what they can to bring these renegades to justice.

“Independent developers are responsible for some of the most creative and unique content in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s vice president of Licensing.

“We noticed there were a lot of high-quality games by independent game developers in the Nintendo eShop,” said Collin Van Ginkel, co-founder of Two Tribes Publishing. “This type of special promotion helps us introduce games of other developers to our fans who may not otherwise discover all the great games available on Wii U.”

World’s greatest hacker calls Healthcare.gov security ‘shameful’

Security expert — and once the world’s most-wanted cyber criminal — Kevin Mitnick submitted a scathing criticism to a House panel Thursday of ObamaCare’s Healthcare.gov website, calling the protections built into the site “shameful” and “minimal.”

In a letter submitted as testimony to the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, Mitnick wrote: “It’s shameful the team that built the Healthcare.gov site implemented minimal, if any, security best practices to mitigate the significant risk of a system compromise.”

Mitnick’s letter, submitted to panel Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and ranking member Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas, held comments from several leading security experts.

Mitnick concluded that, “After reading the documents provided by David Kennedy that detailed numerous security vulnerabilities associated with the Healthcare.gov Website, it’s clear that the management team did not consider security as a priority.”

His comments were backed up by testimony by Kennedy, who is CEO and founder of TrustedSec LLC and a self-described “white hat hacker,” meaning someone who hacks in order to fix security flaws and not commit cybercrime. In November, Kennedy and other experts testified before the same panel about security issues on Healthcare.gov.

Kennedy testified that most of the flaws they identified at the time still exist on the site, and said “indeed, it’s getting worse,” telling the panel that he and other experts have seen little improvement in the past two months.

“Nothing has really changed since our November 19 testimony,” Kennedy said.

Only one-half of a vulnerability has been found and plugged since then, he told the committee. “They did a little bit of work on it and it’s still vulnerable today.”

Also speaking at the panel were Michael Gregg, chief executive officer of Superior Solutions, Waylon Krush, co-founder and CEO of Lunarline, and Dr. Lawrence Ponemon, chairman and founder of the Ponemon Institute.

There have been no confirmed security breaches or hacks of the site yet, despite the alarming current and past testimony from the panel. (At the November panel, Kennedy said the website “may have already been hacked.”) The flaws that have been found are mere speculation, pointed out Krush, whose firm has done security work for the Department of Health and Human Services.

“Nobody here at this table can tell you there is a vulnerability,” he said during testimony. To actually test the flaws would require hacking the website itself, which would mean breaking the law, he noted.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD

I was wasting time
Oh so sure to find somebody who’ll never go
How could I know, none I’d found was true
None could be but You, the only one love divine
My heart, my mind are Yours

Everywhere I go I see Your face through the crowd
Everywhere I go I hear Your voice clear and loud
Everywhere I go You are the light that I seek
Everywhere I go You have found me

Where could my heart go
Where You wouldn’t know to find me?
Far, far from here
Still You are near to me

Everywhere I go I see Your face through the crowd
Everywhere I go I hear Your voice clear and loud
Everywhere I go You are the light that I seek
Everywhere I go You have found me

I have seen You in the evening
In the morining light You hold me
Closer than the air around me
You surround me always

Everywhere I go I see Your face through the crowd
I hear Your voice clear and loud
You are the light that I seek
You have found me

Everywhere I go I see Your face through the crowd
Everywhere I go I hear Your voice clear and loud
Everywhere I go You are the light that I seek
Everywhere I go You have found me

Everywhere I go I see Your face through the crowd
Everywhere I go I hear Your voice clear and loud
Everywhere I go You are the light that I seek
Everywhere I go You have found me

Everywhere I go I see Your face through the crowd
Everywhere I go I hear Your voice clear and loud
Everywhere I go You are the light that I seek
Everywhere I go You have found me
