This report is for the period April 11th to 17th 2016.

Welcome to the stats for the middle of April here on TA, which saw the latest in a popular trilogy hit the tables along with the usual Games with Gold changeover.

The Big Numbers
64,369 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 87,157 games between them (2,115 different games).

Xbox One
New release Dark Souls III manages to take the lead on Started with over 14,000 starters, beating new GwG title Sunset Overdrive. The two games share Achievements Won, with Dark Souls claiming six places including the top three. Other new release, the enigmatic Soda Drinker Pro, unfortunately doesn't quite make any of the tables and neither does Gear Gauntlet.

The previous week's big new release Quantum Break slides down from first to fourth on Started though it steps into the lead on Completed, maintaining around 1,400 completions. New "Wasteland Workshop" DLC for Fallout 4 puts the game back on Completed in third with 850 completions. Minecraft: Xbox One Edition stays high on Completed for a similar reaston, with the "Title Update" bringing in plenty of completions. Following its release the previous week where it failed to make any tables, Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek now appears on Completed in ninth thanks to a standard easy point-and-click completion.

XBLA
XBLA doesn't give us much new, though Sonic the Fighters and Monaco: What's Yours is Mine both pop up after being made Backwards Compatible. With its ridiculously easy completion, Sonic also appears in second on Completed. Mostly though, the new achievements for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition dominate with many more achievements being won in that than any newly started games and keeping the game at the top of Completed with over 380 completions.

Windows Phone
Windows Phone is a similarly devoid of interest with Game Troopers (pretty much the only developer still releasing games with achievements) not releasing a new title for a while, which leaves their most recent offerings Tiki Taka Soccer (WP) and Free Slots Fun Factory (WP) still leading.
