It's a rare three-game release on Xbox Live Arcade this week. Up for grabs are Islands of Wakfu, Strania and Rush'N Attack: Ex-Patriot. The latter is the latest in the running and stabbing series from Konami, Strania is a bullet hell shooter and, finally, Islands of Wakfu is ... well, it's an action RPG spin-off of a popular French MMORPG. For what it's worth, Islands of Wakfu also contains a "mighty platypus."

We've included the duck-billed star in the latest episode of XBLA in Brief, mainly to save you the trouble of actually playing Wakfu.
