How well does the 1996 original Diablo hold up?

And what we want from Diablo 4 - all on the latest Eurogamer Podcast.

Well, who saw this coming? The original Diablo is now available as a digital download - for the first time ever - courtesy of GOG and Blizzard.

Guides editor Matthew Reynolds, editor Oli Welsh, senior staff writer Robert Purchese and features editor Christian Donlan reacquaint themselves with a forgotten classic, and discover the similarities - and surprising differences - between Diablo old and new.

We also touch upon how the Diablo originally came about - it was a turn-based game once, did you know! - as well as its future, discussing what we'd like to see from Diablo 4, and what could possibly be holding it back. And how do you pronounce Diablo, anyway?
