Developers love to add little cookies into trailers and teasers, so we assumed that would be the case with Ubisoft's latest trailer for Watch Dogs.

Ubisoft didn't let us down on this one.

In order to help you all out with finding out what is what, we have an amazing list of 10 things you didn't catch when this bad boy went live.

Watch Dogs has some things in here that indicate we could be seeing a fair amount of satire from the game, or at least a fair amount of weird, random stuff.

Ubisoft is going to release Watch Dogs on May 27th, but you can slake your desire to have it with this for now. Make sure you stick with Examiner.com and Game On for all your news on Watch Dogs.

If you can see what we see, then you'll notice that the word "weekend" in the sign above those guys has a space in between "week" and "end."

Last time we checked, weekend is suppose to be spelling as one word, but Watch Dogs is set in a futuristic setting, so you never know.

Looks like those signs really scared the crap out of those guys.

Yeah so apparently those police barriers that are up and say, "Police Line Do Not Cross," didn't do the job. We assume that's how ineffective the cops will actually be in Watch Dogs.

Then again, we could be wrong.

Ah yes and of course there's that cosplay enthusiast, but who would've thought he'd be the gardener watering the plants?

Honestly, who would've thought that? Honestly.

Firetruck vs. taxi, who is going to win?

Especially given the fact that the firetruck is coming down on a slant. Ouch.

Firetruck wins that battle, firetruck wins that battle nine times out of ten.

By now you've noticed this yourself or by someone else pointing it out, but look at you Ubisoft. Nice little cookie there for fans of the highly popular Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Wonderful what other games that arcade has inside of it. Guess we'll have to wait until Watch Dogs launches on May 27th.

So turns out Watch Dogs is be set during the year 2055.

How do we know, well The Loop in the photo here is alluding to the Chicago Loop.

It wasn't until 1930 that the Chicago Loop was actually built. So in the game, it's experiencing its 125th Anniversary, ergo the year Watch Dogs takes place is 2055.

You're welcome.

What is this? Dragon Age?

You couldn't have missed this from the Chicago Watch Dogs trailer, right?

It's a freakin' mech dragon. Real interesting here, but we wonder if we can hack it and spew fire at our enemies with it.

Huh, wishful thinking.

Who doesn't love a good Civil War reenactment?

Well if you're interested in attending, they take place every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday from 6pm-8pm.

Everyone is welcome? Well now that's not very realistic.

Everyone was not welcome in the actual Civil War, little Tommy couldn't pickup a bayonet and start charging, could he?

Come on Ubi, you're better than that. Get your head right.

Dam that's cool

We had to, if we didn't, it would've been a crime, really.

It looks like we'll be able to take a trip over to the dam nearby Chicago. Now that would be fun to hack and see what would happen. It would do just swimmingly if so.

What is this 'Transformers'?

Okay, so, what the h*ll is that? Did Michael Bay get a hold of this trailer?

Sneaky, sneaky, talk about something that would be fun to hack.

Watch Dogs is shaping up nicely and we'll all be able to experience it when it launches on May 27th.
