Despite the complaints that are seen across the internet, the launch of Skyrim Special Edition (on PC) has not been bad. If you received it for free, because you own the original Skyrim and all of its paid DLC, then it delivers a newer engine with more rendering features and the potential to handle much more modded content at the same time. It is a new game, though, and I think users were expecting to binge on it at launch, when it will take a bit of time to catch up to the original game.
Speaking of catching up, though, Bethesda has released a beta patch for the PC version. Skyrim Special Edition 1.1.51 will remove compression on “some” sound files, which was a major complaint that circled the web since release. They also fixed a few bugs with the save games, performance, and NPC behavior.
To access it, switch Skyrim Special Edition to the Beta channel on Steam by right clicking on the game in your library, clicking properties, and changing the drop-down in the betas tab.

There is nothing wrong with the current comment system, and it loads a lot faster and more reliably than disqus, not to mention privacy issues with 3rd party crap.
One of the main reasons I read pcper instead of other tech sites is because pcper seems to have avoided many of the cancers of the modern internet.

A mobile version of this website would be welcome, but please use the arstechnica style. I hate mobile pages that load large text sizes and only show 10 lines a page.

Can someone release original
Can someone release original sound files as a SE mod? Or is that illegal.
I patched the sound files
I patched the sound files myself with my original Skyrim sounds. Find a BSA extractor, extract the Skyrim sounds file on the original, repack the files with 7zip and install it in Skyrim SE with Nexus. Presto changeo.
Yeah, many people knows this,
Yeah, many people knows this, but they don’t have the vanilla version. So if a mod was made, people with SE version could just use that 🙂

Good news. I like playing SE, but a patch that fixes thing is welcome. Already installed the unofficial patch to fix the stuff they didn’t bother fixing since the original Skyrim.
