    So I havent had a desktop since last october. I just use my laptop until I can afford a CPU. I havent been installing steam because their really isnt a point. I cant play anything. I installed it last night so I could chat with people. and just now I was looking through my library and found "steel storm: burning retribution" which is apparently $4.99 i havent been on steam for maybe 2+ months and if people remember my thread from before i hadent been on in about 9 when i forgot my password. I havent been around for the community update or anything. Anyway iv never bought this game in my life. No charge of it has been made on my account and I didnt recieve it as a gift. This happened before when I got my password back I had like 6 games I had never seen before. In this case just like then I know I have never bought it. and just to be clear im not complaining im just wondering does this happen to anyone else?

    If only HL2 ep3 was my phantom free game sigh a boy can dream.

    A few things showed up in my Steam inventory at random points, not counting passes or coupons: HL2 DM and Nuclear Dawn, that I can remember. Not sure why...they just showed up one day.

    It was part of a Humble Bundle. If you got, or were gifted, the Humble Bundle, you would have that.

    It might also be a "free weekend" deal. It shows up in your library like you own it but you really don't. If this is the case, it will disappear tomorrow.
