I don’t know the way or why I personal two copies of Glover, however I do, and that’s tremendous bizarre
This afternoon, when my web reduce out for *simply lengthy sufficient* that I knew I didn’t have sufficient endurance to attend it out, I made a decision I’d spend slightly bit with an previous sport.
My standards principally boiled right down to 1) one thing sufficiently old that I might effortlessly “pop in” and instantly begin taking part in, and a couple of) one thing with a limited-enough attraction that I wouldn’t be tempted to keep it up for very lengthy. For no matter purpose, my thoughts went straight to Nintendo 64, and after shuffling by means of my cartridges, I pulled out Glover as a candidate. Then, I saved wanting. Hold on a sec — why do I personal two copies of Glover?
I’m not some Glover freak or something, trustworthy. In reality, I’m positive I’ve by no means completed it.
And but… there’s no denying it. The proof speaks for itself.
In some unspecified time in the future in my life — I genuinely don’t know when it might’ve occurred — one other copy of this peculiar 3D platformer a couple of dwelling glove wound up in my N64 assortment. The highest one is my unique cart, from after I was a child. The opposite has gunk on it, and an unfamiliar identify (each on the cartridge itself, and within the custom-initialed save information).
I’ve no reminiscence of those saves apart from “J,” my previous go-to.
The funniest half: throughout these 10 saves, the best recorded completion is eighteen %, and all the things else is both hovering close to 5 %, or it’s straight-up zero.
For a sport I apparently can’t get sufficient of, I positive haven’t invested a lot time in it. Possibly I’ll change that! Or perhaps I’ll wait and see what turns into of the effort to remaster Glover.
It’s a wierd group immediate, I do know, however have you ever ever unintentionally gotten a number of copies of the identical sport? For retro gaming collectors who purchase in bulk, I might see this case arising pretty usually. And for stone-cold classics like Resident Evil 4 which can be abundantly out there, it’d be straightforward to over-buy with out realizing it. In any other case, I’m at a loss. Hit us up together with your adventures in unintentional double-dips when you have any tales.
(Come to think about it, I’ve additionally received two copies of Tremendous Monkey Ball on GameCube — however that was simply an try to interchange a quickly lacking copy, and no less than that sport guidelines.)
