Steam's just alerted me to an 'update' dated November 2005?

    This was weird. I was starting up Alan Wake and got this pop-up from Steam, about the subscriber agreement being updated as from Tuesday November 8th, 2005. :wtf:

    I had never got a similar popup before (and this wasn't my first time playing Alan Wake either).

    I clicked to see what this 'updated agreement' was all about, and got this.

    I checked the date of my pc, it is correct.

    Should I be worrying about the security of my account or something? Or was this just a very weird glitch?

    This usually appears when the game is updating when you launch it. The message below is always the same though. Click the "Update news..." button if there was an update for Alan Wake released...

    Welcome back from the future! You must tell me how Half Life 3, 4 and gosh.. They have to be on 5 from your timeline. Does Gordon win?





    It's a glitch... Or is it?

    It will always say that on game update windows. Seen it for years.

    It sounds to me like that was the last time the Steam Subscriber Agreement was changed. It has nothing to do with the game itself. The agreement probably says something about updates are not optional and must be installed when available. That's why they show you that notice while updating.
