Diablo III's anniversary update delivers some good, clean old-school fun, but one of its reward pets, the Royal Calf, suggests our trip to Old Tristram may have been the reason the series' bovines have been so damn angry for the past two decades.
Diablo 3's 2.3.4 update hit the public test realm today, giving PC players a chance to play through a 16-level retro dungeon packed with bosses from the 1996 original. It's not quite a remake, but it hits all the right notes.

The road to get there is bumpy, but our small guide might help a bit.
