Every game with at least a bit of role-playing elements has them: consumables!
You either get them for bringing back the missing puppy, or you bought dozens of them to make sure you'll outlive that annoying boss. But not everyone uses them in the same way!
So what are you? a big spender, a hardcore gamer or a saver? read more and find out!

Roughly taken the consumables can be divided into four main groups:
- health/mana replenishing consumables
- stat increasing consumables
- attack/defend consumables
- random/fun consumables

In every class the consumables come in all sorts and shapes. From the simple, but effective, health potions and mana potions to the expensive flasks and disguise potions. Some of them are cheap and acquired in all sorts of quests, chests and stores. Others are rare, take days to brew or cost a fortune to buy.

But what it all comes down to is how you use them!
Are you the kind of gamer that uses a potion as soon as the health/mana bar take a hit or do you like taking a risk and wait till the last moment to make full use of your potions?
Maybe you keep the potions stacked "in case it gets even worse" or are you a player thats always fully buffed before he enters a fight?

Personally I'm a risk taker, I want to make full use of my consumables so I usually wait till the very last moment to use them. Also I'm kind of a cheapo, I'd rather wait for a minute to let my mana regenerate and heal myself instead of using a valuable consumable.

So, what type of user are you?
I found three Playstation 2 games today at a local store, nice additions to my collection!

Today I went to the local Game Mania on my way back from the university. They have a nice section of PS2, PS3 and PSP second-hand games (no PS1 unfortunately :( ) which has me as one of their most frequent browsers :D
I even managed to get them to hold back any limited/special editions that they take in and check them with me first before they put them in the store :D

I think it's safe to say I've bought at least 1/3rd of my PS2 games at that store and that's a low estimate! As for my Playstation 3 collection, the only thing I didn't buy there was the Assassins Creed 2 Black Edition.

So, back to today's finds. It's been a while since I've found any Playstation 2 games at the Game Mania that were worth picking up. Most of the games they have in stock are either big franchise games that I already own, or random children's games which I don't want to own ;)

Today I immediately noticed they had a new batch of games come in during the weekend and this is what i picked up:
- Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone
- Soulcalibur III
- Tokobot Plus: Mysteries of the Karakuri

I never heard of the Tokobot Plus game, picked it up because i liked the cover, the back description and because I've never seen it before :)

Gonna try it out tonight, curious if it is any good!
