Limbo and VVVVVV aren’t installable yet, but world of goo & superbrothers should be working fine but they may be having issues with your gfx / drivers.
Can you give any additional information? (like running steam in a terminal, see if they output anything)

Also I noticed Serious Sam 3 appeared in my Library tho I never bought it nor had it gifted by anyone.

I redownloaded the game and now they launch fine. That is weard.

I am running on the standard drivers since when i give the official ATI ones ubuntu stops working and beta drivers say this card isnt supported

its a Radeon HD 4200 or Mibility Radeon HD 4200 i think.

"Serious Sam 3: BFE" is available for all Steam for Linux beta testers. It will be removed again when the beta is over.
