Death to the Mind Flayer
I’ve died way too many embarrassing deaths to that one pain-in-the-ass Black Phantom Mind Flayer who guards the treacherous staircase leading up to the Maneaters, and it’s time for some revenge.
This Demon’s Souls clip – captured by Reddit user Menicent – will do just fine.
The player calmly strolls up while the Mind Flayer’s back is turned, swoops in for a two-handed backstab before it can turn around to fire off a spell, and unceremoniously knocks the creep off the edge. I like to imagine that a pack of Man Centipedes picked its corpse apart. You know, Souls stuff.
Am I getting too much enjoyment out of a simple gameplay clip? Yeah. But I’m not alone. These guys are such a nuisance, especially in New Game+ runs. I’ll cheer on their demise every chance I get.
Vicarious revenge is still revenge!
