  • #Stardew Valley I can help on new farms and older ones
  • #General During a developer AMA, a Response to 'How does it compare to Pokémon?': "Each has their own charms and both can coexist, we don't like to say better than or worse than. Different, however: different creatures, online, 100% doable in co-op with friends, Stamina system in battle instead of PPs, double battles, no RNG in combat whatsoever, chat, mounts, housing, character personalization, community feedback gets implemented, and you have direct interaction with the devs."

Is ARMS worth it?

738 users have added this game. Usually if a player adds a title to their games list, they likely had a positive experience with it. When we combine the total number of players who own this title with some other behind the scenes factors, this game definitely seems to be worth it. We recommend picking it up. That being said, at $59.99, this game isn't exactly cheap and we can understand if you would like to do some more research before purchasing.

Worth it!
