You can add Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios, one of the most popular Smash Bros. players, to the list of high-profile Twitch streamers who recently jumped ship. ZeRo has entered an exclusive streaming rights deal with Facebook Gaming, which now also serves as the home of former Twitch streamer Jeremy "Disguised Toast" Wang, known for League of Legends among other games. According to ESPN, he will continue posting videos on YouTube, but he'll no longer be on Twitch.

Barrios previously retired from pro-gaming until he returned in October 2018 to play in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate competitions. He even set a world record after a 56-event win streak from 2014 to 2015. The former Twitch streamer has revealed his move on Facebook (of course), announcing that his first livestream for the platform will take place on December 3rd at 1PM EST. He'll be putting Facebook's charity-giving tools to good use -- the social network introduced the ability to do gaming charity livestreams in late 2018 -- and raise funds for the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

In addition to Barrios, Facebook Gaming has also signed Spain-based creators xFaRgAnx and Augustin51. Their addition to the platform's roster shows the company is on a mission to capture more gaming audiences outside of English-speaking countries.

Modder makes the GameCube Joy-Cons you've always wanted for your Switch .
If you're a veteran Nintendo gamer, you've likely dreamed of using a GameCube controller with the Switch -- if just to recreate that 2001 vibe of playing Super Smash Bros. Melee in the family den. For mod creator Shank, that's now a practical reality. The hardware enthusiast has torn apart a Wavebird wireless controller to turn into a pair of Joy-Cons that share nearly all the functionality of the official controllers, including the tiny shoulder buttons used for shared-screen multiplayer (it's as awkward as you'd expect, Shank said). About the only thing missing is infrared.
