God of War creator David Jaffe has blurted out obscenities again. When mulling how Kratos might dispatch his foes in Mortal Kombat, Jaffe suggested the Greek powerhouse would "f*** the s*** out of Sonya and Katana at the same motherf***ing time!!!".

"Hell," he added in a tweet that seems to have been removed (but immortalised by Kotaku), "I think Kratos should reach out and pull the f***ing MK Classic narrator into the game and gut the f***er. Oh, or rip the head off."

Jaffe was responding to an OPM report that outed Kratos' PS3-exclusive Mortal Kombat appearance.

Hours after his outburst, Jaffe clarified for the internet that no, he does not advocate rape and that yes, he was having a laugh.

"Yes I was being intentionally juvenile - (I got no issues letting my inner 13 year old run free, clearly) but I was not advocating rape," Jaffe tweeted.

"I was suggesting, as a reward, Kratos gets a threesome with two of the hottest chix [sic] in gaming. Seems like a fun win-reward to me.

"Sorry to the mature people out there who are so serious about everything. OK, done spamming! Later!"

The furore has had the knock-on effect that Epic Games decision-makers Cliff Bleszinksi and Mark Rein openly - via Twitter - talked about getting Gears of War characters in the Xbox 360 version of Mortal Kombat.

Wrote Bleszinksi: "'Clay Carmine for exclusive 360 character in the new MK would be an awesome contrast to Kratos.' - I agree!"

"Must figure out a Gears char in MK!" he added.

To which Mark Rein responded: "Cliff: you know that Mortal Kombat game uses Unreal Engine 3, right? Just call Ed [Boon] and chat with him about it."
