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.


Alvin Lau (a Crusader) and Alexis Loo (a Demon Hunter) met online while they were playing Diablo III. Their online friendship blossomed into a romance, and the pair got married last year, celebrating the whole thing with an elaborate Diablo-themed cosplay photo shoot.


They have been called many things over the years. Isometric RPGs, hack'n'slash RPGs, ARPGs, Diablo clones. But one thing is certain: They wouldn't exist if Diablo didn't come out in 1996. Diablo and its sequels spawned a whole catalogue of isometric action RPGs.


Boosting a character got a lot easier in Diablo III since the introduction of Paragon levels and Seasons, and it always was quick playing as a level 1 character in an otherwise max level party of four. Still, reaching the non-Paragon level cap in 33 seconds is still pretty impressive.


Cosmetic items weren't really a part of Diablo III. Players could get a few pets and wings as rewards for spending money on a collectors' edition or on a Blizzcon ticket, and that was it. The upcoming patch 2.4.1 will change this by adding a ton of new cosmetic loot.


In honour of an artist who worked on World of Warcraft and Diablo, and who passed away two years ago, Diablo devs secretly snuck a mini-event into Diablo III. It's a special version of the famous Cow level and players found it pretty quickly.
