Ubuntu - No audio from Steam games


I have Bioshock Infinite downloaded from Steam and running right now. I've noticed that there is currently no audio. Now, audio works in other things like watching Youtube videos. I also saw that there is audio when I tested it quickly in Minecraft. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the Steam games.

If you can get to the pulse audio volume control when the games are open then that might be worth a look -- perhaps their audio is being sent through HDMI or being muted, for some reason.
