Age of Empire II HD with expansion
Age of Empire III Complete Collection
Bioshock 1
Bioshock Infinite
Darksiders 2
Dungeon Siege (all three games)
Final Fantasy VII
The Last Remnant
Orcs Must Die! 2
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum (this game causing shuttering issue)
Saints Row: The Third
Sid Meier's Civilization V
Total War: SHOGUN 2

Free game I got during the sale:
Left 4 Dead 2
Bioshock 2 (I discovered I can use my retail CD key to get BS2 for free on Steam, and it came with DLC for free as well)

One thing I didn't get is Final Fantasy VIII. I had it on tab in my Firefox with Enhanced Steam addon. I usually check it to make sure I will be able to get it before the sale is over. When I attempted to buy it, the sale is over. I was puzzled why it said that the sale is still ongoing. I found out it didn't entirely refresh the page. Firefox reload the page from the cache with the timer resuming where I left off. I learn my lesson to refresh the whole tabs every time I check it out.

Does Steam still do the developers or publisher week sale? Like THQ did in the past? I heard somewhere that they no longer do that anymore.

Reason for BS2 is because it used to use the Windows Live system and some devs had moved the games to Steam instead, so anyone with old retail keys got the bonus of DLC also. Same happened with the Batman Games.

Yes, I discovered it through bioshock.wikia.com. I was looking up through that wikia to find more info about Bioshock Infinite and happened to stumble on BS2 page. It stated the same thing as you said. I was really planning on buying BS2 through Steam and lucky, I didn't. I raid my entire closet to find the CD key. Good thing I stumble on it.

Anyone have a link to Window Live login page? I know I have the account with them and I couldn't find the link because I forgot my password. But for some reason, MS removed the page and the search to find that page kept pointing me to the Window Live client. I just don't want to install it. I just want to access the forgot password link for my account.
