Okay, so I just finished de-archiving this game called Pure Pure - The Story of Ears and Tails, and under the game file in it's folder, the only file types were .bin and .cue. I don't know how to work either of these, so if you could tell me what to do to work the game, thanks in advance.

Try:

sudo chmod +x /path/to/file.bin

Then run the bin file.

I'm afraid non of these will work, as in this case the bin file is not an executable but a disc image (the presence of the cue file might have given it away).
Now, ubuntu can't mount bin files, but it can mount iso files.
Have a look at bchunk (http://www.howtodothings.com/computers-internet/how-to-convert-cue-bin-nrg-img-mdf-files-to-iso-files-on-ubuntu-linux) for converting the bin/cue files to an iso image.
Then the easiest way to mount it, is to install gmountiso (it must be in the software center).

What will mounting the images do? If the game those files aren't for running the game, what is? The only .exe file is for a minor English Translation.
