Video: find the BlackSite alien petting zoo

You gotta love Easter eggs. They just make things more fun. They bring extra joy to DVDs, video games, and, well, Easter. The video above contains an easter egg for BlackSite: Area 51 which was released last week to hungry alien hunters everywhere. It's a drawn out process which requires players to find a hidden sequence of numbers in order to unlock ... a petting zoo. Okay, so it's not a petting zoo per se, seeing as it's filled with half decayed alien goats instead of non-decayed normal goats, but it's close. We particularly enjoy the vulture actively eating one of the goats. The goat, for its part, seems completely oblivious.

That is pretty incredible. I'm amazed. Just got done playing the crap out of that game. Decently entertaining...although I couldn't beet the final part for some reason - anybody know what the catch is there?

don't feel too bad ... the only memorable thing about petting zoos is that they smelled like shit and hay mixed together, baking in the hot sun. also the "special" children petting the rabbits too hard.

I used to go to one called Brambles. It was a great place in Kent, England. You fed the animals and walked around a lovely country area, and it was huge ( or atleast at the age of 3-7 it seemed huge, even had a river)

Sadly it has shutdown and become a road I think.

Hmm ... it's really a toss of a coin at this point. Do I buy the mediocre $60 title that gives me a petting zoo easter egg or the mediocre $60 title that gives me 1000 gamerscore points in two minutes. Such tough decisions!

Haha, Easter Eggs FTW!

This one is almost like the one waaay back in the days of the (Insert the correct vitage console here, I cant remeber it :/) When all games where Atari's Property, and no one knew who actually made the game... but then if you clicked the one tiny pixel in this one wall, it opens up, and the teams names are all there... awsome... just awsome. Oh and those things reminded me of the Threstals from HarryPotter
