TA Stats - November 30th to December 6th 2015

By Chewie, 2 years ago
This report is for the period November 30th to December 6th 2015.
Welcome to the stats for the tail end of November into the beginning of December here on TA. This week saw the continuance of fairly big name releases over on the One though admittedly these franchises are more on the "B" list compared to recent titles. They've still been highly anticipated by many though so let's see if the numbers reflect that.

The Big Numbers
77,153 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 117,272 games between them (2,097 different games).

8,733 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 11,527 games between them (1,148 different games).

157,601 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,717,833 achievements online between them (54,522 different achievements).

Xbox One
New release and Games with Gold freebie The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing takes the top of the tables by a long way with 21,300 starters. Other new releases Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege and Just Cause 3 take second and third with 9,500 and 7,500 starters each. All three also fill up Achievements Won, with Van Helsing taking the top three spots. Other new releases Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Super Party Sports: Football and Rock Zombie don't make the tables. Instead we get the other big releases of the last couple of months.

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series remains the most completed game after the last episode was recently released while Fallout 4 continues to push up the Completed table into third with 700 completions.

Xbox 360
With the sequel just released, Just Cause 2 shoots up to the top of Started on the 360 with 600 starters, boosted by the game previously being a Games with Gold freebie and also available through Backwards Compatibility. Backwards Compatibility and previous GwG freeness dominates the rest of the tables whilst the week's sale also puts Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon on Started in ninth with 130 starters.

New Games with Gold freebie CastleStorm smashes it on XBLA with almost 3,500 starters and sweeping Achievements Won. As well as the usual Backwards Compatibility and Rare Replay dominance, Syberia also appears in sixth with 130 starters thanks to the week's sale and, with an easy completion, also makes sixth on Completed. Its sequel, Syberia 2, didn't make the tables despite also being on offer.

Spartacus Legends sees the completions taper off from over 100 down to 65 in fourth. This could mean it won't hit my arbitrary target of 1,500 completions before server closure day as it currently sits at 1,200 with only about a week to go. Come on guys, you can do it! Or don't. It doesn't really matter either way.

With sales and new releases taking a back seat, Microsoft Solitaire Collection (UWP) dominates the Windows tables with the other titles not giving us must to talk about.

Recent free release Equalicious (WP) takes it home on Windows Phone, dominating on all three tables thanks to its freeness and easy completion (as long as you have some Facebook friends to help out).

Van Helsing ensures Role-Playing's lead though Rainbow Six and Just Cause make efforts for Shooter and Action-Adventure to give it a good challenge. Castlestorm sees Strategy pushed up onto the table in tenth but it doesn't really challenge the rest of the table.

That's all for now. Next week sees mostly ID@Xbox titles try and make their mark amongst all these recent big name releases. I think they'll struggle to appear.
