TA Stats - February 8th to 14th 2016

By Chewie, 8 months ago
This report is for the period February 8th to 14th 2016.

Welcome to the stats for the second week of February here on TA, which sees a spin-off title for a big name franchise conspicuous in its absence.

The Big Numbers
53,178 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 77,113 games between them (2,241 different games).

7,948 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 10,560 games between them (1,244 different games).

133,054 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,273,534 achievements online between them (58,046 different achievements).

Xbox One
With its trial release for EA Access members the week before, Unravel saw its full release this week, pretty much matching its starters of around 5,700 on both weeks. This allows it to take the top spot on Started as the numbers for Games with Gold freebie Hand of Fate slip from 17,400 to 3,300, dropping into third behind other new release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. Those three titles share spots on Achievements Won, with Naruto claiming the most places and the whole bottom half of the table. Dying Light also claims a spot thanks to the "The Following" DLC, as does Call of Duty: Black Ops III for reasons unclear to me. Any takers?

As with other weeks, plenty of new releases don't make the tables. Perhaps surprisingly, this includes Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia. Less surprising are Q*bert REBOOTED: The XBOX One @!#?@! Edition, D/Generation HD and In Space We Brawl: Full Arsenal Edition. Although it doesn't make Started, an easy completion does give Factotum 90 a place on Completed in ninth with almost 170 completions.

Elsewhere, Deadpool shows up in sixth on Started thanks to the week's movie-related sale and LEGO Marvel's Avengers clambers to the top of Completed, although its completions don't see a big rise (around 260 to 270), it's more that the other titles in the list see a bit of a drop in numbers.

Blah blah, Games with Gold, blah blah. Having said that, though, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance does pop up in seventh on Started thanks to the week's sale, no doubt boosted because the digital version of the game also includes the otherwise delisted DLC packs. World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition again dominates on Achievements Won and clambers up from seventh to first on Completed thanks to the recent achievement-carrying Title Update.

Games with Gold freebie Sacred Citadel leads considerably on a mostly familiar XBLA list, excluding the additions of Trials HD and Alan Wake's American Nightmare after being added to the list of Backwards Compatible titles.

After appearing fairly high in the tables for two weeks, big new Win 10 release Rise of the Tomb Raider (Win 10) drops away entirely this week, leaving the table again full of the usual stuff. Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta does reappear in third, though, thanks to an update that also added some new achievements.

New free release Fusion Dots (WP) takes the lead with 240 starters and a few spots on Achievements Won. With the usual free-to-play grind, it doesn't come close to Completed yet, though.

Action-Adventure remains fairly stable in the lead this week whilst a drop in numbers see Shooter close to being usurped in second by Action, which gets a boost thanks to Naruto and Sacred Citadel. The full release of Unravel pushes Platformer up from tenth, all the way to fifth.
