His career has been active since 2008.
UberHaxorNova Bio: Early Life, Family and Education
Even though James Wilson aka UberHaxorNova is one of the most popular YouTube celebrities, there is little information concerning his family and early life that is available to the public. What we do know, however, is that he was raised by his single mother in their hometown of Lancaster, and as a young boy he enjoyed playing with his dogs as well as playing computer and console games with his friends. Shortly after matriculating from high school, James found a job at the ‘Twizzlers’ factory, and worked at several jobs before finally managing to make a career on YouTube.
Early YouTube Career
James launched his first channel on the platform on 4th April 2008, and started by making videos about the things that he enjoyed doing the most in his free time – playing games. He uploaded the so called ‘machinima’ videos and ‘let’s play’ videos with his own commentary during the playthroughs, and soon his videos were picked up by the newly launched ‘Machinima Respawn’ channel. James played a variety of video games instead of focusing on just on, and quickly rose to prominence in the gaming community because of his humor as well as gaming expertise; at one point he joined forces with YouTube’s currently most popular and most subscribed content creator ‘PewDiePie’. The first official group UberHaxorNova joined was “The Creatures” in 2010, during his time with which James collaborated with other famous YouTubers, such as ‘Sp00nerism’, Intern Joe, Aron and Spencer Lovell, which played various multiplayer games that were broadcast live and watched by thousands of fans. As the number of the members grew along with the group’s popularity, they decided to move in together, and bought several apartments from which they produced their content. It was during his time with “The Creatures” that James met Aleksandr Vitalyevich Tchernev-Marchant aka ImmortalHD. The two became close friends during that time, and left the group together in 2016. James and Aleksandr stated that this was because other members wanted to change the major themes of their videos, and make them more appealing to younger audiences, which was in stark contrast to James’ and Aleksandr’s creative visions, as they wanted to make more adult-themed content and did not want to be creatively constrained by other people.
“Cow Chop” and Collaboration with “Rooster Teeth”
UberHaxorNova and ImmortalHD left “The Creatures” in 2016, and focused on their own group called “Cow Chop”. The content of their new videos remained similar to what they produced while they were with “The Creatures”, which kept many of their long-term fans happy and helped them remain popular and successful. The duo soon started collaborating with “Let’s Play” and “Rooster Teeth” groups, which proved beneficial for their work as the number of subscribers on their channels kept increasing. Among the most popular games that the duo has played are “Dead Rising 3”, “The Walking Dead: A New Frontier”, “The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim” and “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood”.
Being one of the most prolific content creators on a highly popular platform such as YouTube means that fans will do anything to find out bits and pieces from your personal life. However, UberHaxorNova is keen on keeping his private details exactly that, but so prompting numerous rumors and speculation. Although it was not confirmed or denied by him, fans have speculated that James is in a long-term relationship with another gamer and content creator named Kylie, better known by her online alias ‘Ven0mKisser’. Kylie is 24 years old.
Being one of the earliest, most ardent and most dedicated gaming content creators on YouTube, UberHaxorNova has managed to earn a solid amount of money for himself. Authoritative sources have estimated that his overall net worth is somewhere around $3 million, and considering that he is still among the most popular gamers and streamers on the platform, we can surely predict that his wealth will increase even more as years go by.
Social media is an important business aspect for online content creators, so James has quite a strong online presence, and often interacts with his fans. First of all, his official YouTube channel boasts around three million subscribers, and his videos have garnered nearly 2 billion views over the years. On the other hand, the “Cow Chop” official channel has nearly a million subscribers, and more than 400 million views, and His official Instagram account has around 140,000 followers, while his Twitter profile is followed by more than 660,000 people.
