Launch the game with -SteamBoards to avoid some (fairly minimal) corruption to your online profile (number of tracks played, etc.).
This is also necessary to make the game run well and prevent crashes; see bug #45967
Desktop Audio mode is broken under Wine, but that's no biggie; not only can PulseAudio work around the issue, it also does it better than Windows (and Wine) would natively.
For instance, we can pick up audio from just one program, and the sound effects can play from both speakers instead of one, unlike in Windows.
When you're done playing:
Remove the null audio sink by running pactl unload-module <number>, where <number> is the one you got from loading the module.
Forgot the module number? Run pactl unload-module module-null-sink to remove all existing null sinks.
