A potential collaboration between Keanu Reeves and gaming legend Hideo Kojima may be in the works after the actor visited Kojima Productions in Tokyo. 

Hideo Kojima is easily one of the most recognizable names in gaming as the creator of the Metal Gear Solid series as well as the upcoming Death Stranding. While his games are relatively bizarre, they’re also somewhat similar to films action star Keanu Reeves finds himself in.

The Matrix lead, who recently signed on to do a fourth film in the series, met with members of the studio and posed with Kojima in front of Ludens, the company’s mascot. He also left a very interesting message for the team on their kitchen board.

“Save us, Hideo!” the 55-year-old wrote.

Kojima even tweets photos of Reeves writing the message and posted them with the following message: “He gave us the message on our kitchen board! Thank you so much, everyone at our studio loved it! The moment hades became heaven.” 

The game developer also included some weird emojis such as a thumbs up, a rainbow, a baby, sea animals and a skull. While the baby and skull could be references to his upcoming title Death Stranding, the others seem out there even for Kojima.

Reeves is no stranger to video games. The John Wick protagonist is starring in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 as Johnny Silverhand. 

CD Projekt RedJohnny Silverhand will be played by Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077.

Given the track record of the two icons of their craft, a potential team-up for either Death Stranding DLC or a new game entirely could get the entire internet to say “whoa”. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to be released on April 16, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and was recently announced for Google Stadia

Jinny banned from Twitch again for reckless driving

Twitch star Jinny has revealed that the streaming platform will be banning her after she drove quite recklessly on a scooter while visiting Germany.

The popular IRL streamer explained to her viewers that her impromptu decision to ride a scooter without very much experience was a bad idea.

“I got banned. Not yet, but I will get banned because of scooter,” she said. “Because I don’t have a driver’s license, I’ve never tried scooter that much. So, I made a lot of mistakes.”

As Jinny further noted, even though she tried to be careful, mistakes were bound to happen. “So, I’m just not going to ride scooter to avoid any mistakes being made.”

In a since-deleted clip, Jinny can be seen riding a scooter while wobbling and appearing to have significant trouble steering.

At one point, the streamer even ran a red light and nearly bumped into other people trying to ride their vehicles.

“It was green! Damn it!” she cursed after crossing the road. “Wasn’t it green?”

How long will Jinny be banned for?

According to the Korean streamer, this ban will last for seven days, because this isn’t the first time Twitch has had to discipline her.

As Dexerto previously reported, Jinny was first banned back in July after playing The Last of Us Part 2 on stream.

During the broadcast, she erroneously referred to the female character, Abby, as a “transgender” which resulted in the platform banning her for a “hateful comment.”

However, Jinny was unbanned a mere eight hours later after making a public apology.

The ban timing is extremely unfortunate as Jinny is in the middle of a trip, so being unable to stream takes some fun out of the experience.

For her part, however, Jinny is taking the ban seriously and accepts that it was her fault. As for when she will be banned, she claimed that it will happen when it’s “morning in NA,” so the ban should be kicking in at some point on October 20.
