Traditions are an integral part the holiday season. Trimming the tree, spending time with family, last minute shopping, and arguing for religious validation through corporate advertising are just some of the things we all put up with with this time of year. But what do these traditions have in common? They all suck.

The undue stress we put ourselves through completely takes a crap on what should be a joyful time of year. We want to put the awesome back in Xmas, 8Bit Proof style. While it may be tough to recapture the joy of unwrapping a brand new game console while wearing footy pajamas, we’ve done our part to make this season bright. So spike the eggnog, throw on an ugly sweater, and go wassail your ass off. It’s time for some new traditions.

Corey's been playing video games since he first climbed atop a barstool to play Duck Hunt on an arcade cabinet. He maintains an unhealthy obsession with Ducktales, the Back to the Future trilogy, and Punisher comics. If he's not playing games, you can probably find him riding his motorcycle, napping in a hammock, or weeping gently into a glass of whiskey. He also enjoys self-deprecating humor, and talking about himself in the third person.
