If you're like me and you never reboot, you may want to start there(I know, I shouldn't be saying that when it comes to a linux machine). If you've had any kernel updates and not rebooted, there could be a conflict between the graphics driver kernel module and kernel version.

The problem seems to be with the libpcre libraries in the version from Valve website, i fixed the problem by removing those libraries from the steam directory forcing steam to use the one installed on the system. rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpcre.so.3 rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/...

A so called kernel panic happened (you can see this on the last lines of output). This can have a range of reasons, but you describe that it happens after having used the computer intensively for some minutes, therefore I suspect that gaming causes your computer to heat up, leading to this.
