By Chewie, 9 months ago
This report is for the period February 29th to March 6th 2016.

Welcome to the stats ending February and picking up the beginning of March here on TA, which saw the usual changing of the guard for Games with Gold having the biggest impact on the numbers.

The Big Numbers
50,302 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 71,435 games between them (2,250 different games).

9,575 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 12,533 games between them (1,321 different games).

134,685 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,435,646 achievements online between them (57,947 different achievements).

Xbox One
New Games with Gold freebie Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments shoots into the top of Started with over 6,200 starters. As a fairly easy completion it takes fourth on Completed and naturally leads on Achievements Won though only manages the top spot. The majority of the rest of that table is filled with the second most started title, the previous week's big release, Far Cry Primal, which also jumps from the fourth to most completed title.

Slipping into the second spot on Achievements Won is https://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops....htm, which appears thanks to the release of the new "Awakening" DLC. It doesn't put the game on Completed though, unlike the week's other main add-on release, the "Hot Rods Update", which puts Need for Speed into third with almost 580 completions.

None of the week's other new releases, Screencheat, Gunscape, McDroid, Ironcast or Action Henk, make an appearance anywhere. The week's sale gives Star Wars Battlefront a place in sixth on Started with over 920 starters.

Xbox 360
New GwG freebie Supreme Commander 2 smashes to the top of the table with over 2,000 starters and an easy clean sweep on Achievements Won as no other title comes close to being played as much. There's little else of interest though Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures does appear in ninth on Completed as an easy title in the week's sales.

XBLA
Sale title Galaga Legions DX manages to take fifth on Started on XBLA amongst the usual mix of previous freebies and Backwards compatible titles whilst recent new release The Walking Dead: Michonne (Xbox 360) slips from first to third, though that game does maintain its lead on Completed and many spots on Achievements Won.

Windows
Finally something new on Windows! Gears of War: Ultimate Edition (Win 10) stomps into first on Started with 380 starters, though it isn't exactly a commanding lead. It also can't quite manage a clean sweep on Achievements Won thanks to four pesky Solitaire achievements.

Windows Phone
After significantly dominating on its release last week, Free Slots Fun Factory (WP) now quietly slips down into second, dropping from almost 1,000 starters to under 170. It's still the most played game though with seven spots on Achievements Won, including the top four.

Genres
There's not a whole lot of movement on Genre this week, though Sherlock Holmes does give Adventure a small boost up from sixth to fifth whilst Supreme Commander can't do anything for Strategy, which continues to languish off the bottom of the table.

Next week, Tom Clancy's The Division and HITMAN are the big names in contention for the top spot. I have a feeling I know which one will win. Sorry, 47.
