    Thats weird. Try letting the battery completely drain, and then recharge it. If that doesn't work you can try restoring from iTunes, and if that still doesn't work it's brand new and it still has a warranty so take it in to Apple.

    Relax, all iPod 4Gs batteries do that. Hard to have accurate percentage on smaller batteries.

    It's normal, iPod will change the percentage of battery according to what are you doing.

    Aye, Mortal Combat 2 sucks a lot of juice as opposed to just listening to music or reading a book,
    think of it as a timer as opposed to a gauge.
    ie if i continue playing MC 2 i have 23% of my typical battery time left- not playing MC2 I have 53% of my typical battery time left.
    working as intended
