This report is for the period February 15th to 21st 2016.

Yes, some of you called it last week, the new release chews up the tables and spits them out, leading on both Started and Completed and sweeping Achievements Won clean. Well done that game. And this despite the Games with Gold changeover. New freebie Styx: Master of Shadows has to settle for third behind other new release (for EA Access members only at this point) Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2. Layers of Fear also appears in fifth after being released on the world following its stint in the Game Preview program. Unfortunately, other new releases Pixel Piracy and Wondershot are absent. Meanwhile one item from the week's sale, proves pretty popular as Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty takes eighth.

As well as the Rocket League completions pouring in, Knight Squad jumps up to overtake Fallout 4 with almost 500 completions in second thanks to a controversial update making the game a whole lot easier. Now that enough time has passed for the date related achievements to be earned, ROBLOX also appears in eighth with 180 completions.

With no big new releases to hold it back, Games with Gold has a much bigger impact on the 360 as new freebie Gears of War 2 takes first with 1,200 starters. Despite technically only being free in Japan, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts also appears in third thanks in part I'm sure due to some regional jiggery pokery. Gears nearly sweeps Achievements Won but World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition manages to slip into tenth, still doing well with its recent DLC release, though it drops from first to third on Completed.

Although no longer free, Sacred Citadel remains mostly unchallenged at the top of XBLA. Not even recently added Backwards Compatible titles Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Trials HD and Galaga provide much of a challenge in second, third and seventh. With an easy completion, Galaga does better on Completed, taking third with over 40 completions. American Nightmare also manages to kill Sacred Citadel's clean sweep on Achievements Won by claiming the bottom spot.

Apart from Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta holding steady in second and Rise of the Tomb Raider (Win 10) remaining lost to the tables after dropping off last week, Windows gives us little in the way of excitement or joy or interest or anything really. Where are all the other Windows 10 releases at?!?

Last week's new release Fusion Dots (WP) continues to lead though drops in starters from 240 to 190. It also claims the top half of Achievements Won as the completions and therefore achievements for Equalicious (WP) begin to drop away again.
