This patch (to svn 38746) will enable guest additions to install and work inside a windows 8 guest.
vboxvideo.sys has a bug not working, but the areo version VBoxVideoWddm.sys works, so make sure to enable 3D and assign 128MB video memory, select d3d during install of guest additions, and then click No to not choose basic video, this way, the advanced video will be installed.
