TA Stats - March 28th to April 3rd 2016

By Chewie, 6 months ago
This report is for the period March 28th to April 3rd 2016.

Welcome to the stats for the very end of March into the beginning of April here on TA, which mostly sees Games with Gold and Backwards Compatibility controlling the tables. Thankfully there are some big releases around the corner to shake future weeks up a bit.

The Big Numbers
58,300 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 83,729 games between them (2,229 different games).

9,611 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 12,550 games between them (1,271 different games).

144,653 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,561,840 achievements online between them (58,493 different achievements).

Xbox One
New GwG freebie The Wolf Among Us leads with over 9,300 starters. With all the achievements relatively easy but all the episodes to work through, the game appears high on Completed in fourth with over 500 completions, a number and place that is sure to rise in the coming weeks as more people finish it up. It also sweeps the top half of Achievements Won, with the Tom Clancy's The Division taking the bottom half. That game slips to fourth on Started but also lands in second on Completed with 850 completions.

New release Resident Evil 6 grabs third with 2,700 starters whilst other new releases R.B.I. Baseball 16, Active Soccer 2 DX, Gryphon Knight Epic, Organic Panic, Steredenn and Adam's Venture: Origins, don't appear at all. NHL 16 turns up in eighth thanks to being added to the EA Access vault.

At the top of Completed, Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series sits with almost 1,000 completions thanks to the release of the final episode. Fallout 4 stays similarly high in third thanks to the "Automatron" DLC.

Xbox 360
New GwG Dead Space leads the way on Started and the top few spots on Achievements Won, with its predecessor Borderlands following behind. Borderlands also manages to grab third on Completed, even with all that grindy DLC. Perhaps surprisingly, Dark Souls leads the way on Completed as well as taking third on Started after being added to the Backwards Compatible list. Left 4 Dead 2, Halo Wars and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 all appear mid-table for the same reason.

New Backwards Compatible games also affect XBLA with SoulCalibur II HD Online leading the way, though it doesn't do great on Achievements Won. Instead, Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series (Xbox 360) grabs six spots, including the top four. However, despite that, the second episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne (Xbox 360) puts it ahead of Minecraft on Completed. Sale title Contrast (Xbox 360) proves popular as the fourth most Started and Third most Completed title.

Since the recent bigger releases dropped right off the table, Windows again gives us very little to talk about. All I've got is that recent release Fire: Ungh's Quest (Win 10) has dropped down from second to seventh on Started but stays solidly in first on Completed.

Windows Phone
New release Tiki Taka Soccer (WP) leads the way by a long way on Windows Phone and grabs the top two spots on Achievements Won. With the usual free to play grind, it doesn't take any more places and avoids Completed entirely.

Wolf Among Us and two new Telltale episodes across both consoles pushes Adventure easily up from sixth to third on Genres.
