26 Years Later, Groundhog Day Movie Gets A Sequel...And It's A VR Game

Sony has announced and released the first trailer for the upcoming video game Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son. The VR game is a sequel to the 1993 Groundhog Day movie, taking place many years after the events of the film.

According to Sony, you play "as the charming but arrogant Phil Connors Jr., who grew up in the shadow of his father--a man who spent a lifetime repeating a single day until he had made it perfect." Just like his dad, Phil Jr. finds himself stuck living the same day over and over, one where he's still trapped in "the small town he thought he'd escaped, where he can't even get a decent cappuccino--and he's going to have to repeat the day over and over, until he learns the true value of friends and family."

Like Father Like Son is a story told entirely in VR, and has you exploring a branching narrative within the same looping period of time. You'll interact with different characters--some of which you'll recognize from the 1993 movie, like Ned Ryerson--and have to figure out how to get Phil Jr. his perfect day so that he too can break his vicious cycle.

In The Year 1999

Throughout the final year of the 20th century, there was an incredible amount of anticipation for what was to come in the approaching new millennium. However, 1999 was an interesting period in its own right, and closed the book on the '90s-era of gaming in a strong way. With the Sega Dreamcast making a solid debut, the PC offering more engaging online experiences, and the Sony PlayStation finishing up its period of dominance prior to the launch of the PS2, 1999 was a remarkable year full of games we still remember to this day.

In this feature, GameSpot is taking a look back on the games that closed out the '90s and helped set the tone for the decades that followed. Whether it was the launch of Super Smash Bros. on N64, the rise of psychological horror games with Silent Hill, or two of the Dreamcast's finest launch titles with Sonic Adventure and SoulCalibur--1999 ended up being a stellar finale for gaming in the '90s.

In order of their respective western releases, here are our picks for the games that made 1999 a year to remember. If you want to see our previous roundups focusing on other fantastic years in gaming, be sure to check out our features below.

Supernatural's Secret Ingredient Is Three Tons Of Steel, Even 300 Episodes Later

Supernatural's Secret Ingredient Is Three Tons Of Steel, Even 300 Episodes Later

When Supernatural first premiered on The WB back in 2005--the same year YouTube came into existence--it was introduced as the story of two brothers, reunited and fighting the evil forces their family had been chasing for years. Now, 300 episodes later, Supernatural is still exactly that. While secondary characters have come and gone, it always comes back to the tale of Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and his brother Dead (Jensen Ackles), traveling from town-to-town and vanquishing whatever otherworldly forces seem to be wreaking havoc.

There's a third piece of the Winchester puzzle that's been with the brothers since the very beginning, though, and it's as integral to the formula as anyone or anything else on the show. When Dean rolled back into his brother's life in the show's pilot, he did it in his trusty 1967 Chevrolet Impala, nicknamed "Baby" and passed down to him by his dad.

Baby, in many ways, is the heart and soul of Supernatural. For the brothers, it is the armory of weapons they use to fight against any number of demonic entities, their home on long nights with no motel room in sight, and the vessel that takes them to a new locale each week. The car has even had its own episode of the series in Season 11's "Baby," which told a story from the Impala's point of view.
