Is this what a blown headgasket looks like ? (EJ25)

I'm in the process of replacing the headgaskets. THe PO said one of the gaskets blew just before he pulled the engine.
Take a look at this pic. Does this look like a blown gasket ?
How can I see if this one is busted or not ?
I'm going to replace the gaskets just to be sure, are there any other things I should do while I have the heads off ?

What is that squarish insert like part on the top of the pistons?

NorthGuy, I guess I should have put 'viewer discretion advised' in the topic
Frag, I am guessing that the recess in the piston is either for valve clearance, or to create a better 'quench (sp?) area' to improve flame travel over the piston and inside the combustion chamber.
