I haven't used Red Octane, but supposedly online rental places like Netflix have an annoying habit of not having titles in. Titles mysteriously disappear at the renter's house (well, it's not so mysterious, as it's fairly obvious what happened to them) and tend not to be returned. Titles tend to be fairly slow in getting to you, so basically if you were on a two game at once plan, you'd only rent about six games a month or so. In theory online rentals work well, but in practice they're all bad. On the bright side, there are no shipping charges because they send you some kind of prepaid envelope to return games.
