Can't add gmail account in Windows 8 Mail app

Hey. I'm trying to add my Google mail account to the modern-style UI mail app and whatever I try I get the "Unable to connect. Ensure that the information you entered is correct." message.
What do I do?

I'm using Windows 8 Pro 64bit
When you add the account are you checking the sync contacts and calendar setting in the add account experience? If not can you try with the option selected ?
