Coming up on this LinuxGameCast Weekly. We show you what to do with a “hacked” Steam client. Jordan rages against Serious Sam 3 BFE, and Venn buys a fan. Oh, we also have a go at some neat KickStarter gaming projects.

Stick around for the spoiler filled aftershow where we take on Skyfall, Cloud Atlas and South Park.
