It doesn't show up under the "Linux" button, like so many other games that works with linux. Why is this? I know I can buy it and it will work but it's wierd it doesn't show up in the linux games listing.
The L4D 2 with the icon is the official one, but it just got a "(Beta)" mention added back to it. I tested the other one earlier, but it is a bit too much for my Intel HD4000.
And both are marked as "beta", so what's your point?

Sir, the Intel Hd 4000 must be really crippled on linux if it isn't running properly. I have a Intel HD 4000 (ivy bridge) laptop that can play Crysis 3 on normal settings, the witcher 2 on low settings, Saints row 3 on high settings, heck there isn't even a game that it really can't play.

It's not your hardware that is lacking, its the driver support atm.
It also depends on how recent his kernel and mesa are.

Same for me (from France), and also, I got the same issue with Half Life 2, I don't see the Linux icon...
