comment What written language is more commonly used for video games in China?
@Huang Even games sold in the USA may occasionally use British English if going for a more traditional or European style, but the key is still using whatever language the users will still understand.

comment I'm dying to learn Chinese
I disagree with this. As a beginner, you'll want some foundation vocabulary and grammar to begin practicing the language, and a good textbook will provide all that plus plenty of usage examples. Of course though, having a Chinese friend will help you a lot with pronunciation, and once you have a basic grasp of the language, learning from a native speaker is great, but start with a good book!

comment Informed sources for videos of Chinese movies
Typically this information is given on the movie case and not really anywhere else, so when buying movies online, I'd recommend just contacting the seller directly with the question. If answering your question may lead to you buying their product, they should be more than happy to help

comment Neutral Terms for “White People”
When referring to white people in general, I feel that Chinese speakers would more often use "西方人". Otherwise as Gus said, the speaker would try to find out which country the person is from and refer to him or her by that.

comment Where should I place the comma in large numbers?
I think the title would be a bit more clear as "Where should a comma be placed in large numbers" rather than something so specific.

comment Learning Chinese using traditional characters
If you order it online, it should say whether it has one or both forms. For example: This book and this book. Higher level books tend to have both, but it should always state it on the cover of the book.

comment Learning Chinese using traditional characters
Yup, both Taiwan and Hong Kong use traditional characters, and many of the characters in Japanese which come from Chinese characters are also traditional. As for finding a text book, I believe most decent Mandarin textbooks nowadays have all the vocabulary, dialogs, and examples in both simplified and traditional, some are essentially the same book printed twice with traditional on every left page and simplified on the right.

comment Where, when and what is the word 圆舞 used for?
Looking through some examples of it, it looks like it's a generic term for (as the name implies) a round dance. The Waltz could be called a kind of 圆舞, and it's danced to "round dancing music" (圆舞曲), but it doesn't look like it refers to any specific dance or is commonly used at all.
