James Richard Wilson Jr. is an American YouTuber gamer and comedian. He found fame in 2008 and is more popularly known by his channel’s name, ‘UberHaxorNova’. He is currently one half of the ‘Cow Chop’ duo alongside his best friend Aleks. He began his career by playing and commentating for the online gaming network, ‘Machinima’, and later branched out to produce ‘Let’s Play’ content, which brought him immense popularity and made his channel one of the top gaming channels on YouTube. He also worked with Machinima Respawn and uploaded videos for them. Wilson stopped focusing on Machinima in 2014 but later worked for its subsidiary company, Polaris. His fame reached its peak when he joined ‘The Creatures’, a YouTube group that focuses on gaming. He worked for this group for almost six years before he called it quits, citing creative differences as the reason. He currently has over 3 million subscribers on his channel and was shortlisted for the Shorty Awards in the gaming category. He has an active fan base, and he continues to upload videos every day.
James Richard Wilson Jr started his channel ‘UberHaxorNova’ in 2008 and published several Machinima videos. He also posted some ‘Let’s Play’ videos of different games. He later began posting videos of ‘Machinima Respawn,’ which had just been launched. When his fan base started growing, he expanded into commentary too. This caused a remarkable shift in his videos as he decided to solely focus on commentary because that brought in a higher number of viewers. He later started experimenting, and initiated a solo playthrough of Dead Rising 2. This turned into a multiplayer walkthrough along with the YouTuber, ‘Sp00nerism’. They continued to play various multiplayer series in the coming months. He was so popular that one of YouTube’s most subscribed user ‘PewDiePie’ played with him. Wilson has also collaborated with other celebrity YouTubers like Sp00n, Kootra and Cryaotic.
In 2010, he joined ‘The Creatures’ aka ‘The Creature Hub,’ a gaming group he had previously worked with. While creating several multiplayer series together with fellow gamer Sp00nerism, he was introduced to other Machinima members. He soon was absorbed into the group and regularly appeared as a guest on their talk show. He also secured a voice on ‘Happy Wheels’, a platform browser game, in which he has his own character, ‘Pogo Stick Man’. His videos under this channel became popular and his series about Happy Wheels was so successful that his fans demanded it to be continued. The creator of the game himself contacted Wilson.
His stint with ‘The Creatures’ became one of his most famous collaborations as the scope of their content expanded by the year. His best friend Aleks, better known as ‘ImmortalHD’, joined ‘The Creatures’ and worked with Wilson. The group moved to the ‘Creature House’ in Colorado to continue working on their channel together and used this house as their office. ‘The Creatures’ were so successful that they received sponsorships from Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. Wilson even had a limited sponsorship contract with NOS Energy Drink. However, the members had different ideas about the direction the channel should take. They failed to reach any decisive conclusion. Wilson finally decided to leave the group along with Aleks on April 30, 2016.
He had worked with ‘The Creatures’ for six years and cited creative differences and personal problems as the reasons behind his exit. After leaving ‘The Creatures’, Aleks and James decided to focus on ‘Cow Chop’ and they also continued their relationships with ‘Let’s Play’ and ‘Rooster Teeth’. They started uploading videos in April 2016 and regularly hosted livestreams. The channel focuses on pranks and gaming with commentary. Their content includes Wilson setting things on fire, playing with fireworks inside homes, breaking walls and doors, and other activities that draw in a lot of viewers. The duo posts videos regularly, one video a day on an average. Wilson also has a second YouTube channel titled, ‘NovaPipeBomb’; this secondary channel focuses on WWE gaming videos. His popularity earned him a nomination in the category of ‘Gaming’ for the sixth season of the Shorty Awards. While his current net worth has not been disclosed, there are speculations that he’s among YouTube’s self-made millionaires.
