Direct2Drive Launches Download Rental Scheme

Digital distributor Direct2Drive quietly launched a rental scheme for downloadable PC games last week, though so far it's looking somewhat less than inspiring.

D2D charges $5 for five hours of playtime, then if you want to keep the game, your $5 will be knocked off its price. The selection is very limited at the moment, with only Divinity II - Ego Draconis, F.E.A.R., Race Driver: Grid and Silent Hill: Homecoming available now. D2D notes that "our rental selection will grow in time." Read more »

Silent Hill 5 Interview: Jason's Philosophy, Jacob's Ladder, and Pyramid Head

Silent Hill: Homecoming lead designer Jason Allen had just finished talking about the virtues of Alien. Eloquent in his presentation at a recent Konami press event, he noted the strengths of Ridley Scott's classic horror film, pointing out that we only fully see the monster at the very end of the movie, a major influence on his approach to tension in Silent Hill.

It does look great on the outside, a combination of logical improvements and strict adherence to series code. But as a long-time fan, change is more scary than any monster. And like the fog-dowsed town of its namesake, a brief glance wasn't enough to reveal anything significant. Read more »
