Three new releases hit Xbox Live Arcade this week, though one won’t be available until Friday.

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior’s Rise and Dogfight 1942 are both available now for 800 and 1,200 Microsoft Points, respectively. Coming later will be Mark of the Ninja, which will also command 1,200 MS Points.

This week also sees a new add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim called “Hearthfire.” Here, you can expand the options for building your home, and even adopt children, all for 400 MS Points.

A new table is also available for Pinball FX2. Based on the popular game Plants vs. Zombies, this one will run you 240 MS Points. There is also a bundle coming for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 tomorrow called “Collection 4 – Final Assault,” and that one will be 1,200 MS Points.

Special sales for other members… er, are vague. There is a “Back to School Sale” mentioned with prices that vary through September 10th, but they don’t say on what, exactly. During that same period, however, you can get the Just Dance 3 “Spring Break Pack” for 320 MS Points.

Rounding things out are a College Game Day update for Avatars, and the following titles added to Games on Demand: Street Fighter X Tekken, Sniper Elite V2, Cabela’s Adventure Camp, Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 3, and Birds of Steel.
