Wait, how do you pronounce Dante? i thought it WAS with the "O" sound. Like "Octagon".

Awk-ta-gone

Dawn-Tay.

I used it before I saw anyone use it a year ago, but it's NOT a stretch at all.

"My name is Dante" line in the first trailer pissed a lot of people off. No, you are not Dante, you flipping drug addled ****bag.
