So, just for a minor update, I spent a good few hours on Friday, and another 4 or so today building the breakout board. I am still missing 14 3V3 zener diodes, but I will go purchase more tomorrow at university. Apart from that I have successfully done simple controlling of LEDs using aRPi as an experiment, and I will do more testing on my breakout board tomorrow (which pins work, etc. mostly making sure my noob skills were good enough). I havent yet finished the IP Updating, but I will do that through this coming week, and when that is done will begin working with the Xbox Kinect!
